With more than a hint of pop art, the Gufram collection is both subversive and laugh-out-loud enjoyable. But belying the whimsy is a brand that’s had a profound influence on contemporary design for the last four decades.
Gufram’s use of polyurethane was revolutionary in the creation of many of its iconic pieces, allowing it to push out the parameters of modern design, illusionism and conceptual art. Celebrated worldwide, Gufram is exhibited in permanent collections in MOMA New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, amongst others.
