Gufram Alvar Lounge Chair by Giuseppe Raimondi

About the Item

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.

  • GUFRAM Mozza Stool & Chair by Giuseppe Raimondi
    By Gufram Furniture, Giuseppe Raimondi
    Located in La Morra, Cuneo
    Designed in 1968 by Giuseppe Raimondi, Mozza maintains the same vibrant revolutionary appeal and ability to adapt to countless living needs. Rendered in its present edition in a sexier and slimmer form, Mozza is an upturned truncated and athwart-cut cone on which it would seem impossible to sit. By lying back on its sloping surface of sort polyurethane, though, its structure gives in to body weight until it acquires the shape of a chair with back- and armrests. It's simple but original structural magic that makes it one of a kind. Mozza's external mass misleads you. Thanks to its lightness, this seat becomes a nomadic and versatile object in the living landscape. The primary seat for the sitting-room at home or the perfect service armchair in the sophisticated and elegant halls of design hotels, Mozza combines the international contemporary style with the characters of the Italian radical design, highlighted by the variety of its contemporary and pop upholstery colours.
