What happens if a Majestic Greek column falls down and breaks into several pieces? The answer is obvious: it is transformed into a Gufram lounge. The remains are in fact contemporary archaeological finds, that give life to a modular system of seats - of neoclassical taste and Pop attitude - that can exist as single elements or be combined one with the other. This architectural archetype, produced in polyurethane, becomes in this way a series of objects of industrial design of smooth texture and cosy ergonomics.

The Ionic volute, which is the upper part of the column and was not by chance called Capitello, becomes a luxurious chaise longue.

Attica and Attica TL are made
of blocks of polyurethane sculpted by hand,
just like the columns at the Erechteion 
in the Acropolis in Athens

The transversal section is called Attica, and is the cheeky seat with a dotted black and white cushion. The section at the base, of cylindrical tapered shape, is the table Attica TL, with a bifacial glass surface, opaque on one side and mirror shiny on the other.

If then, in an attempt towards auto ironic auto-celebration, you wish to showcase an archaeological find of design in your home, you can stack them back one on the other and in this way recompose the entire Column in its monumental and playful daring.
