GUFRAMINI® PINK EDITION
Limited to just 333 numbered editions per design, Gufram unveils the worldwide exclusive GUFRAMINI® PINK EDITION miniatures only available at the GUFRAMINI® PINK EDITION WALL in K11 MUSEA. As if in a fairy tale, Gufram’s iconic Bocca® sofa, Cactus® coat hanger and Pratone® chaise long have magically been shrunken into GUFRAMINI® creations that are 1:8 scale of the originals exhibited at the world’s leading museums.
To faithfully reproduce the details of these universally recognised symbols, Guframini® are made with molds that faithfully reproduce Bocca®, Cactus®and Pratone®: each "mini" creation is produced thanks to special receipt of polyurethane foam, which goes under a delicate and extremely difficult process to control self-expansion; skilled craftsmen handle with extreme care all the steps of the procedure, so that the result is always perfect and always coherent with the original-size pieces, with the same softness, same colors and same details.
Each Guframini®is then finished by hand and, thanks to this artisan finishing procedure every piece is one-of-a-kind, just like every Bocca®, Cactus®and Pratone®are unique pieces.
The unusual pink tone is the leitmotiv of the set up at K11 MUSEA: in fact, a huge pink wall is on display in the mall, allowing visitors and collectors to see the pieces through cut-out shapes representing the magnified version of the three pieces.
