Globe container cabinet is designed by Studio Job for Gufram with frame in lacquered wood available in yellow, with rotating globe of soft polyurethane, finished and decorated by hand with Guflac. Dedicated to all the travellers on the world, Globe was the first container cabinet included in the Limited Edition Gufram collection, as well as the first container created by the Dutch duo Studio Job for an Italian company. This is the very first globe cabinet ever made as an artist piece for one of the designers of the cabinet; Nynke Tynagel. It is hand signed on the lower corner by her as well.
The globe that rotates upon itself at the centre of the cabinet represents the desire to escape and also to bring into the house the idea of travel: realized of soft polyurethane and entirely hand painted with Guflac – the particular paint patented by Gufram that makes it possible to make polyurethane look like leather while maintaining its flexibility and softness – the globe recall a dreamlike world thanks to its archetypical shape and the stylized silhouettes of the continents.
The soft globe is the trait d’union between the historical Gufram production and a new type that comes into being with this project. The container function is carried out by a yellow hgh gloss lacquered wooden structure that exalts the globe’s polychromy as well as the ironic soul of this spectacular piece of decor. Globe has had all the world talking about it through the covers of some of the most important design magazines, as well as being selected as one of the best 2014 products by AD Germany. In Job and Ninke’s home study – the founders of Studiojob – Globe is the protagonist and because of this it was on the cover of Elle Decor China.
