“When a majestic Greek column falls and breaks into different pieces it transforms itself into a Gufram sitting room”. The chaise longue Capitello, the armchair Attica and the coffee table Attica TL are contemporary archaeological finds that, exactly like the columns in the Erechtheion at the Acropolis in Athens – from which they find inspiration for aesthetics and dimensions – can be left out in the weather thanks to a particular finish which is suited also to outdoor use.
This project embodies the “tactile short-circuit” concept, which is an integral part of Gufram’s DNA: the appearance that simulates the aspect of the pentelic marble of the Parthenon is in contrast with the softness and lightness of polyurethane, which guarantees maximum ergonomics of the seats by supporting the body weight.
All the elements in this production are painted with Guflac, the special and unique finish patented by Gufram that makes it possible to make polyurethane look like leather while maintaining its flexibility and softness. In the case of Capitello, Attica, and Attica TL Guflac was enriched and modified, so as to resist to outside weather, thus making the use of these products possible also as outdoor decor. If then, in an attempt towards auto ironic auto-celebration, you wish to showcase an archaeological find of design in your home, you can stack them back one on the other and in this way recompose the entire Column in its monumental and playful daring.
