JOLLY ROGER Chair
A symbol of the hardiness and daring of the
pirates; this weirdo chair was designed by
Fabio Novembre, as one of his grandfathers
worked as a pirate. Giving homage to
our origins, this chair, made out of linear
polyethylene, encourages the feelings of
audacity and bravery.
BELLAFORZA Table
The PRATONE Lounge
This lounge is definitely matchless. Its
uniqueness is derived from the long green
stalks among which we can sink in a
marvelous mix between the freedom of the
outdoor and the coziness of the indoors.
Designed by CERETTI / DEROSSO / ROSSI,
this lounge was inspired by the designers
when they used to sit on the grass when they
were younger!
One of the shining
trademarks of Italian
design throughout
contemporary history with creations positioned in many
museums in different sections of the world, GUFRAM has
reveled some of their latest designs.
The key factor in the success of this Italian
design master is the magical blend between
design, various types of art, and the inspiration
of nature. Fasten your seat belts; we are going
on a journey between wonders!
COLONNA Lounge
Imagine sitting on top of one of the stone
capitals of a marvelous column of the ancient
Greek temples? What would it feel like? Made
out of polyurethane and designed by Studio
65, this uniquely shaped lounge allows the
seater an exceptional feeling of luxury!
BOCCA Sofa
This giant lip-shaped sofa is one of the most
popular creations of Studio 65 and produced
by GUFRAM in 1971. It is in fact displayed
in many museums around the world. The
idea of the sofa originated actually from the
1935 Portrait of Mae West by Dali, the famous
surreal artist and the hot lips of famous
Hollywood actresses. This season BOCCA is
dressed in black and pink
PRATONE lounge
BELLAFORZA Table
Designed by Denis Santachiara, the
BELLAFORZA table is mainly inspired by the
Italian “futuristi”, an artistic movement that
originated in the early 20th century. This
table; with fixed tripod in metal with matte
varnishing and the top in ultra clear glass,
symbolizes the concept that we should all
respect cultural diversity.
The Cactus Totem
A totem is a being, object, or symbol
representing an animal or plant that serves as
an emblem of a group of people. This Cactus
is a totem of the free wild imagination and
humor of the designer; DROCCO/MELLO, who
liberated himself from all physical constraints
and borders to create this popular piece of art!
