Expanded polyurethane coat rack / sculpture
The TOILETPAPER collection presents the reckless works imagined by the creative duo - the artist Maurizio Cattelan and the photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari. Called to collaborate with their pictures by The New York Times, Vogue and Le Monde and after having realized several setups in prestigious cultural institutions like the Beyeler Foundation and the Palays de Tokyo, Cattelan and Ferrari translate for Gufram their iconoclast aesthetics into Interior Design items and accessories that are produced in limited or special editions.
The hall tree Cactus is an icon of the collection Multipli by Gufram that has become a myth in the history of design. The myth was transformed into an idol that Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari decided to destroy. In concert with Guido Drocco and Franco Mello, the authors of the Cactus produced by Gufram since 1972, TOILETPAPER has thus created a new iconoclastic and desecrating version. A new cult object.
