Gearing up for Milan Design Week, Gufram will be unveiling the “Sculpted Series”, a five-piece collection crafted in collaboration with the Daniel Arsham and Alex Mustonen-founded design practice, Snarkitecture.

The “Sculpted Series” comprises a bookshelf, an armchair, a bar cabinet, a low table, and a coffee table. These domestic yet sculptural items are crafted to appear distressed and broken, an aesthetic that nods to both parties’ previous collaboration, the “Broken Series.”

The five pieces are doused in all-black or white using Guflac® Ultra, an evolved formula of Gufram’s durable and weather-resistant Guflac® paint. Each piece is completely hand-sculpted by artisans using polyurethane foam, which is then hand-applied with Guflac® Ultra. Even with this paint layer, the polyurethane foams retain softness and elasticity, serving as a testament to new aesthetic experimentations.

Snarkitecture’s founders, Daniel Arsham and Alex Mustonen say that “We love collaborating with Gufram. Their approach, craft, and sensibility make Gufram feel like a distant and much-loved relative of Snarkitecture. For the Sculpted Series, we wanted to create objects that people can live and work with, a range of different programs and purposes. The pieces appear solid, in the process of being unearthed, yet reveal themselves as soft forms – a playful surprise in your daily life.”

Gufram and Snarkitecture’s “Sculpted Series” will be exhibited at the Capsule Plaza, inside Spazio Maiocchi, and will remain on view throughout Milan Design Week from April 17 – 23.
