he most radical Italian design company is glad to introduce its fans to the miniatures of the 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 are in fact, made with molds that faithfully reproduce the original pieces: 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 which is identical to the original one: the same softness, same colors and same details. Each Guframinis is then finished by hand and, thanks to this artisan finishing procedure every piece is one-of-a-kind, just like every CACTUS® is unique.
The mini 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.
Made in Italy.
