Poche meraviglie del West suscitano più stupore delle bellezze di un paesaggio dell’Arizona illuminato dalla luna: lo splendore argenteo delle montagne in lontananza, gli strani chiaroscuri dei crinali e degli arroyo e i grotteschi particolari dei CACTUS, rigidi e meravigliosi, formano un dipinto allo stesso tempo incantato ed evocatore.
Edgar Rice Burroughs, Sotto le lune di Marte, 1912
Cactus is one of the most iconic and representative objects of the Italian Design of the Seventies, a design that sought the dialogue between irony and functionalism. Cactus can perform its function as a coat hanger, but it can also be used as an imaginative decorative element.
Conceived in 1972 by the genius of Guido Drocco and Franco Mello and produced by the Turin-based company Gufram, it is present in the permanent collections of important international museums, such as MUDE in Lisbon, ADAM in Brussels and the Fondation Beyeler in Basel.
Originally – the iconic one – was born in the emerald green color (sold out by the manufacturer and available here), but over time it has also been proposed in white, red, black, lime green and blue.
Dimensions: 70 x 70 x 170 cm
