"I Sassi" ("The Rocks") Seating

Designer Piero Gilardi Italian
Manufacturer Gufram Italian

Not on view

This seating group is unconventional in both its Surreal aesthetic ("soft" rocks) and its technical structure (unsupported polyurethane foam). Avoiding any associations with traditional furniture, Gilardi created an amusing and subversive design that is as much a work of art as a functional object.
