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 humour of the design of the 1970s. Cactus comes to life in 1972 thanks to the genius of Guido Drocco and Franco Mello.
