About

The miniature Cactus, one of the radical design symbols par excellence. Gufram offers its fans a version identical to the original designed by Drocco and Mello in 1972. The mini mold is perfectly identical to the full-scale design and shows 2165 dimpled areas that decorate the stem and the arms of this otherworldly coat rack. The color was obtained by carefully studying the original green color to reproduce it, giving design enthusiasts a chance to own, albeit in a reduced version, a limited-edition design piece that is now sold out. As if in a fairy tale, the Gufram icons have become smaller and have now turned into Guframini! The most radical Italian design company has just revealed some brand new creations for its fans: miniatures of the Bocca, Cactus and Pratone designed in a 1:8 scale; the new miniatures perfectly reproduce the smallest details of the famous domestic sculptures exhibited in the world’s leading museums. Guframini are in fact, made with molds that faithfully reproduce Bocca, Cactus and Pratone: each "mini" creation is made of polyurethane foam which is injected into the mold which has previously been painted so to get, through a state-of-the-art method, a unique piece wich is identical to the original one: the same softness, same colors and same details. Each Guframini is then finished by hand and, thanks to this artisan finishing procedure every piece is one-of-a-kind, just like every Bocca, Cactus and Pratone are unique pieces. Production lead times are often flexible and stock levels vary.

About The Maker

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.
