Gufram Alvar Lounge Chair by Giuseppe Raimondi

US$2,665.91per item

About

Sitting on the ground, but ready to be moved elsewhere, Alvar is a chaise-lounge of structural polyurethane foam that preserves the lightness and versatility of the Sixties. After 40 years it has certainly matured in spirit, but deep in its soul it keeps its hippie attitude alive. Conceived in the years of radical design, Alvar is one of the first products with which Gufram faced the Challenge to produce modern furniture as opposed to the status quo of those in the manneristic style. Alvar is evidence of how successfully that confrontation, which had begun in 1968, has now finally ended in favour of products like these, which were already then dynamic and fresh and had organic lines, free from expected frills. Its naturally ergonomic shape makes it a comfortable decor item which is at the same time an aesthetic statement, as highlighted by the numerous colours in the catalogue. Alvar was designed by Gufram's first art director, Giuseppe Raimondi, who laid the project foundations of the brand that is still inspired by its products today.

About the Maker

Gufram

Gufram is an Italian design brand globally known for pushing the limits of industrial design. With its Radical Design spirit and its nonconformist experimentation linked to aesthetic, technological and material research, Gufram has created design icons that have entered collective imagination: playful, subversive and desecrating products with a POP soul, willingly designed as anti-design items. Gufram was born in Turin as an artisanal entity, where the craftsmen specialized in upholstery, cabinet making and furniture padding met the artistic and international avant-garde with the goal to give birth to a new way of understanding modern furniture. Since 1966 Gufram has been producing design icons that have become unique in form and value thanks to the cross-contamination between the industrial design approach, the artisanal creation and the imaginative flair typical of ART. Gufram’s unmistakable furniture items like the lips-shaped couch Bocca, the chaise lounge Pratone and the hall tree Cactus, also known as Domestic Sculptures able to interpret the contact point between both the artistic and the design worlds, are now displayed in the most beautiful houses and in the most renowned museums in the world.
