Description
Pop art by Piero Gilardi, made by Gufram. Gilardi's starting point for the creation of the rocks was the material rather than the objects' ultimate function as seating. He was fascinated by the possibilities of polyurethane foam for all kinds of shaping, carving, finishing, and coloring. These "nature fakes," as he termed them, were conceived as a kind of tactile, livable art: "I was trying to create a fantastic nature landscape for men living among all the modern city's concrete... Like most of the artists of my generation I don't see much in the exclusivity of art. I believe in art as a consumer item to be retailed at big stores rather than in galleries." From 1968 he adhered to the new artistic trends of the period — Arte Povera, Land Art, Anti-form Art. 'Sassi' became one of the symbols of Gufram's naturalistic inspirations and of the "true-fake" concept, which can be found in many of its products.
