BOUNCE (2014) by Karim Rashid - FUNCTIONAL COLLECTION                             
 
Inside the Gufram catalogue a chair had always been missing. One of those used to sit at table, just to give you an idea. It was a missing space which still needed to be filled, and a great responsibility. And after having spent years rejecting the standardized concept of interior design and its constraints, Gufram decided to produce a veritable chair and entrusted the project to a visionary soul like that of Karim Rashid, because Gufram considers it a very serious challenge to  overturn constraints, or to use them as new landing points. 


Bounce is, from a technical point of view, a veritable chair for the dining room, stackable, suitable also for outdoor use, but it can be defined as a new icon of Pop Functionalism. It is pop because it is irreverent, fresh and bright, thanks to its single elements that can be composed in an infinite kaleidoscope of possibilities, which makes Bounce a versatile product that can steer through any domestic landscape.


The geometry of the elements is dimensioned so as to be self-supporting and guarantee an anchoring to the metal frame, even if there is no upholstery. And this result is already in itself a design short-circuit. 
With Bounce, thanks to Karim Rashid, Gufram lays claim to its pioneering soul in the field of research. A territory where technique and art can meet through the experimentation of new materials and unusual and different applications, while stressing the ironic and desecrating tone which is the unique genetic code of the Company.
