Product description

“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 thre

edimensional trompe-l’oeil effect, meant to induce a playful experience even in the space of domestic everyday life”.
Cit. Piero Gilardi

In this way the author personally describes Massolo, which can at first sight look like a heavy block of p

orphyry, 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.
