LEONARDO By Gufram
Sofá modular de poliuretano
de poliuretano (PU)
Leonardo is a visionary interpretation of modular couches that celebrates, deconstructs, and exalts the American flag and its positive values. This couch, free from joints and structural constraints, is moreover a clear reference to the Vitruvian Man by Leonardo da Vinci, because its modules are obtained from two concentric circles inscribed within a square. Leonardo, icon of the itinerant exhibit Pop Art Design that has been travelling around the world for years, is a domestic sculpture rich in meaning that does not renounce its soft connotation, since it is completely made of hand painted polyurethane.
Modular couch of soft polyurethane, finished and had decorated with Guflac.

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.
