About

Inside the Gufram catalogue a chair had always been missing. One of those used to sit at table, just to give you an idea. It was a missing space which still needed to be filled, and a great responsibility. And after having spent years rejecting the standardized concept of interior design and its constraints, Gufram decided to produce a veritable chair and entrusted the project to a visionary soul like that of Karim Rashid, because Gufram considers it a very serious challenge to overturn constraints, or to use them as new landing points. Bounce is, from a technical point of view, a veritable chair for the dining room, stackable, suitable also for outdoor use, but it can be defined as a new icon of Pop Functionalism. It is pop because it is irreverent, fresh and bright, thanks to its single elements that can be composed in an infinite kaleidoscope of possibilities, which makes Bounce a versatile product that can steer through any domestic landscape. The geometry of the elements is dimensioned so as to be self-supporting and guarantee an anchoring to the metal frame, even if there is no upholstery. And this result is already in itself a design short-circuit. With Bounce, thanks to Karim Rashid, Gufram lays claim to its pioneering soul in the field of research. A territory where technique and art can meet through the experimentation of new materials and unusual and different applications, while stressing the ironic and desecrating tone which is the unique genetic code of the Company.

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.
