Functional Pop - MADE IN ITALY: Handmade ironic, iconic, pop products for everyday living
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 XX 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.
Detecma breaks free from the models of the category and denied any formal definition; a recliner floor seat, which is 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.
