Gufram Magritta

MAgriTTA is a sculpture-armchair, homage to Surrealism. The green apple and the black bowler hat, recurrent figurative elements in the works of René Magritte, are assembled by the visionary imagination of Sebastián Matta into a new seat, realized in polyurethane foam and covered with cloth.

Playing with the unexpected association – an apple in a hat? – and with the dimensional estrangement – an apple which is as big as a hat or a hat which is a small as an apple? – Matta is able to translate the deception, the joke and the illusion of Magritte’s works into a design object.

The ABS hat works as the structure while the apple, made of soft polyurethane foam and upholstered with elastic cloth, becomes a comfortable and soft seat
