BOCCA By Gufram
Fabric, Polyurethane (PU)
Bocca, the original 1970 lips-shaped couch is only Gufram's. This sensual couch, which is ideal for a tête-à-tête, has entered the collective imagination on par with Andy Warhol's works, as well as other pop art masterpieces and represents the perfect abstraction of feminine beauty. Soft and welcoming thanks to its look and the soft polyurethane it is made of, Bocca was on exhibit in the most important museums in the world, such as the Louvre, the Museum of Applied Art and Science in Sydney, and the Design Museum in Monaco.
Couch in soft polyurethane covered with cloth.

The Iconical Collection presents those pieces that interpret and keep alive and throbbing the desecrating spirit of radical design. It's masterpieces of Italian design that have already gotten into the collective imagination, as well as new domestic sculptures that - language and identity-wise - show elective affinity with those products that are displayed in the most important museums in the world. These pieces of interior design - realised exclusively by hand - represent the magical encounter between art and design that is part of Gufram's DNA.
