The subject of often ambiguous interpretations, Cactus is the icon of Italian design that has revolutionized the domestic landscape, by subverting the borders between indoor area and open space. Cactus comes as an ironic totem, and embodies the imagination and the humor of the design of the Seventies. Cactus comes to life in 1972 thanks to the genius of Guido Drocco and Franco Mello.
Produced in 1986, nr 494 / 2000, only used as decoration, very well conserved! This green is the most authentic green, even different, more beautiful green, as the earlier, also very beautiful sold and by me in Paris delivered green cactus.
