Estimated Production Time11-12 weeks

About

Detecma is an acronym for design, technique and mathematics. These three values were united for the first time in 1967, the year when the Physicist Professor Tullio Regge, renown as one of the most influential scientific thinkers of the 20th century, transformed a mathematical quartic function into a volume with intentionally ergonomic characteristics. It was an epic event to which Gufram decided to pay tribute by putting again into production a seat, which has revolutionized the history of design through its planning approach. Today we take for granted the use of computers for the creation of three dimensionally represented forms. Think about those years, though: Man still had to conquer the moon, and the era of computers was at its very beginnings, as they still were rudimentary instruments that took up entire rooms and worked with punched cards. Microprocessors had not been invented yet, and personal computers were still cutting-edge experiments in an almost secret department at Olivetti. In other words, it was technological prehistory. But Professor Regge’s intellect was working fifty years ahead of everybody else. And so a recliner was born, that broke free from the models of the category and denied any formal definition; a recliner floor seat, which was part ottoman and part chaise longue, and that gave life to a precursory image of a way of seeing living, as well as an interior design project that would become a mass phenomenon only a few decades later. Detecma is a project that comes back in 2014 with a connotation of disarming modernity: the parametric “open source” mathematical formula is taken from the Dupin Cyclide, and its gradient colours cover the entire chromatic spectrum in an explosive celebration of full tones and perfectly blended nuances. Six versions that, put together, return all the tones in the world. Please note: this piece is on exhibition only at the 1stdibs Gallery. Purchased pieces will be shipped directly from our production site in Italy. Production lead times are often flexible and stock levels vary. Materials: Seat of soft polyurethane upholstered with fabric.

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.
