MELLO, Franco. The Rock Furniture: Il Design Della Gufram Negli Anni Del Rock.
(Turin, Italy): Castello di Rivoli, 2002. First edition. Small square quarto. 96 pages. Amazing book-in-a-brick-wall catalogue, published to coincide with the exhibition at Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Rivoli – Torino, May 22 – Sept 1, 2002. Text in English and Italian. The exhibition explored the designs of Gufram the creative lab for modern furniture production. Using the then new material polyurethane the company started to produce innovative sculptural objects than can be viewed both as a supplement to the Italian radical design movement and the world of pop-art, with their multiples sitting somewhere on the borders between art and product design. This is a near fine example of the legendary catalogue, some small holes to the cover, common to all copies being caused by processing of the polyurethane. Scarce both institutionally and en commerce. .
