Have you ever dreamed of sitting among the ruined columns of the ancient world? Well, in 1972 experimental Italian design group Gruppo 65 realized this dream with the Capitello chair. Today it’s available in cold-moulded polyurethane foam from Gufram, allowingyou to bring a bit of design history into your living room.
The Capitello might look like a simple piece of interior whimsy, but behind its design is an innovative attempt to re-think the weight of tradition. Part of a group of furnishings created from a broken-down Ionic column, the lightweight polyurethane foam is an unexpected take on classic heavy marble. The capitello chair has a central curve that makes a comfortable seating or lounging surface and is finished in Guflac® washable paint.
