GUFRAM Blow Chair by Emanuele Magini

About

To decontextualize one of the most classic and celebrated interior design types. To rethink the classical frameworks of Le Corbusier e Van der Rohe in order to reinterpret the daybed in a contemporary key in light of the teachings of radical design. It could be the perfect pop chaise longue for your situationist shrink. And maybe it might even work to help you overcome the fear of water. Blows recalls the reassuring and archetypal shapes of the air mattress of the seventies, and brings within domestic spaces the taste of a vacations that can last even all year long. Supported by four essential legs of stainless steel, the structures is made of polyurethane foam. For the upholstery Waterborn was used, an innovative cloth made thanks to modern technology that makes it possible to save 70% of the water and 35% of CO2 when compared to normal microfiber cloths. The cloth is hand sewn on polyurethane, so as to give the illusion of an inflatable mattress. You won't feel the earth under your feet anymore, but an ocean of relax in which to lose and lightly abandon yourselves – even fall asleep without the risk of being carried away by the current. Home is your safe harbour; Blow is your exclusive and privileged berth, let alone it does not pollute, needs no maintenance and has no running costs. Bye-bye, yacht – and welcome Blow into my dreams.

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.
