Baby-lonia came to life from the genius of Studio 65, a group of radical designers led by Franco Audrito, following the innovative ideas of pedagogue Francesco De Bartolomeis. Because of its educational content, it was used by some of the best Italian schools during the 70s. Baby-lonia is light, flexible, and so suitable for kids.
In the 80s, Gufram decided to make it into a true interior design item, perfect for enriching the catalogue of a brand already involved in the production of pop and radical objects.
The polyurethane foam Baby-lonia is coated with Guflac, the unique paint patented by Gufram that makes polyurethane look like leather while increasing its resistance and maintaining its softness.
Baby-lonia is a domestic sculpture that can be broken up into chairs and tables but remains a toy for kids and adults. As the story goes, it is the only toy that belongs to the collection of the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.

Studio 65, populated by a substantial group of newly graduated architects - and frequented by students and artists - found the way of both of expressing their imaginations in a project, and of offering the client and the cultural world a touch of irony and a critical approach to design.
