GUFRAMINI PRATONE® By Gufram
Polyurethane foam miniature
Pietro Derossi, Riccardo Rosso, Giorgio Ceretti
GUFRAMINI PRATONE® plays with the juxtaposition of a "large-small" proportion by reducing to 7/8 the giant Pratone® that was designed in 1972 by Ceretti, Derossi, and Rosso, and exhibited that year at the MoMA as part of the "Italy: The New Domestic Landscape" exhibition. Just like the original version, the base of the "mini" sculpture shows the writing ‘Pratone’ on one of the sides, and 42 soft stems stretching in different directions complete the radical look of this little icon.
As if in a fairy tale, the Gufram icons have become smaller and have now turned into Guframini®! The most radical Italian design company has just revealed some brand new creations for its fans: miniatures of the Bocca®, Cactus® and Pratone® designed in a 1:8 scale; the new miniatures perfectly reproduce the smallest details of the famous domestic sculptures exhibited in the world’s leading museums.
Guframini® made with molds that faithfully reproduce Bocca®, Cactus® and Pratone®: each "mini" creation is made of polyurethane foam which is injected into the mold which has previously been painted so to get, through a state-of-the-art method, a unique piece wich is identical to the original one: the same softness, same colors and same details. Each Guframini® is then finished by hand and, thanks to this artisan finishing procedure every piece is one-of-a-kind, just like every Bocca®, Cactus® and Pratone® are unique pieces.
