Bocca, the original 1970 lips-shaped couch is only Gufram's. More than any other, this object of design represents the perfect abstraction of feminine beauty. It is no coincidence that it was photographed by important photographers such as David La Chapelle and Richard Avedon together with style icons, muses, as well as the most beautiful women in the world such as Marisa Berenson, Heidi Klum, Anne Hathaway and Sharon Stone. It is among Gufram's best known products, and as a true diva it was the protagonist of more than a thousand editorials and featured on the covers and editorials of the main design and fashion magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Baazar, Elle and Vanity Fair just to name a few. This sensual couch, which is ideal for a tête-à-tête,has entered the collective imagination on par with Andy Warhol's works, as well as other pop art masterpieces. Soft and welcoming thanks to its look and the soft polyurethane it is made of, the sexiest couch in the history of interior design can interpret the atmosphere of interior design with the most appropriate make-up. Exclusive and provocative when fire red, black with an oversizepiercing that exalts its rock and transgressive soul, or produced in a precious golden version, it lends itself also to other alluring contemporary tones. Besides at the Louvre, the couch Bocca was on exhibit in the most important museums in the world, such as the Museum of Applied Art and Science in Sydney, the Design Museum in Monaco,and the MAK in Vienna.
