About

Jolly Roger, like the pirates' flag. If you think about it, it is a homage to the piratical spirit with which Gufram subverted the rules of design. it is a seat that formally recalls the skull – the symbol of cockiness printed on the red flag of French and English corsairs, the terror of the seven seas. The seat, designed by Fabio Novembre, is the first Gufram project in roto-moulded plastic, thus suitable also for the outdoors, as well as the first not to have a soft part of polyurethane, which has always been part if its DNA. Inside the seat is a planisphere which recalls the maps used by Pacific buccaneers and symbolizes the brand's internationality. The globe is suspended in the frame; it is a map surrounded by the oceans, an insatiable desire for conquest, almost an exhortation not to stand still, a warning: you are sitting on the world, never forget it. Jolly Roger, consistent with the attitude that unites all Gufram's products, is an armchair that represents a gesture of demand for freedom; it is synonym of intellectual independence that follows a courageous path, and goes away from the dry standardized types of interior design projects. Abstract Jolly Roger, like the pirates' flag, is a seat that formally recalls the skull – the symbol of cockiness printed on the red corsair flag. designed by Fabio Novembre and produced with roto-moulded plastic, is perfect for the outdoors; inside is the relief in the shape of a planisphere which recalls the maps used by Pacific buccaneers and symbolizes the brand's internationality.

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.
