This was one of the highlights of Milan Design Week: this year’s new collection of furniture and accessories by Gufram. Disco Gufram is one set that gives a new shine to 2018’s interior design trends.
Disco Gufram features new pieces not only from Italy but also from France and the Netherlands. Among the names that contributed to this collection are Atelier Biagetti (Italy), Rotganzen (Netherlands), and GGSV (France).
This collection was inspired by another set also by Gufram first released during the 70s, like, for example, the upholstered “disco seats”. This set, named the Linea Discoteca, was extravagant for its time so the brand decided to update the concept and give it a new life in the 21st century.
Each piece has a sort of lightful appeal that alludes to the sort of ambiance felt at a disco. The brand’s intentions were that every piece reflected each its own sense of humor, beauty, and attitude.
The highlights of this collection are the five sofas: Betsy, Tony, Stanley, Jimmy e Charly. Each of these furniture pieces has its own personality, flexibility, and of course its own shine. These five products are a good example of the flexibility one collection can have while sticking to one main theme.
There are also some rugs in this set. These Parisian rugs (a set entitled as Dance Floor) are printed in several distinct and vibrant colors (such as orange, pink, purple, and black) and present themselves in the most unusual yet diverse shapes (circular, narrow or long, all of them with rounded borders).
