massolo by gufram

Design Piero Gilardi, 1974
Soft polyurethane finished in Guflac
Made in Italy by Gufram

"Not a rock or a natural stony ground anymore, but a block already contaminated by man's hand, who started to polish the shining material. To the observing eye it has an enormous weight. but when touched it has a light and elastic mass. It provides a three dimensional trompe-loeil effect, meant to induce a playful experience even in the space of domestic everyday life." -Piero Gilardi

In this way the author personally describes Massolo, which can at first sight look like a heavy block of porphyry, etched and polished on the surface - an immovable boulder that, thanks to the polyurethane it is made of, loses weight and can be moved with ease. It is another design paradox of Gufram's, that suggests a playful object capable of dematerializing a heavy volume into an original story. An amusing visual and tactile snare for the guests, which can be used as a coffee-table, a seat with character, or displayed as a multiple piece of art by one of the most original Italian artists.

To make it look like rock, the polyurethane block is entirely rough-hewed by hand; this is why every Massolo is a unique piece.
