Polyurethane coat stand


Polyurethane (PU)

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.‎

Cactus is the icon of Italian design that has revolutionized the domestic landscape.‎ Made of flexible polyurethane this hall tree with four cantilever arms is as tall as a person and looks like an ironic totem.‎
It was created in 1972 and since then it is made and painted by hand.‎ Over the years Cactus has been produced in several colours for as many limited and numbered editions on exhibit in the most important museums in the world.‎

The Cactus designed in 1972 by Guido Drocco and Franco Mello, an icon of the Italian radical design of the Seventies, acquires  two new colors, Another Green and Another White.‎
Another Green is a tribute to the original edition, but the  green one is characterized by a different, lighter and brighter, alive and contemporary tone; Another White, on the other hand, acquires a warm, soft, natural allure, with a shade of white that approaches ivory, the tone of canvases.‎
