Raimondi’s work for Gufram reflects his interest in the art world, which led him to collaborate with the artist Ugo Nespolo. This table and its chairs express a language linked to Pop Art that investigates the relationship between design and sociality. Raimondi graduated in Turin in 1967. Thanks to his researches into the field of experimental design and the expressive possibilities of new materials, he was creative director of the company Gufram from 1966 to 1970. The innovative pieces Giuseppe Raimondi created, as well as his leadership, contributed to giving the company international renown. In 1966, together with artist Ugo Nespolo, he created for Gufram Margherita, a table with matching chairs, and later the arm-chairs Alvar (1967) and Mozza (1968). After that his curiosity towards new materials led him to create a series of mirrors, tables and lamps which played with the reflection of forms and light. He also worked with lighting, as well as with textile, interior design and ceramics fields. In 1970, together with others, he founded the studio A.ba.co and later opened a studio on his own in Turin.
