Following the success of 2020, this year Gufram presents a new limited edition of the GIACOMO truffle brush.
In addition to the first version, the GIACOMO Black Edition is now available in only 100 pieces.
The plastic aesthetics of the product are further magnified by its monochromy: the surface has a finish made with a galvanic treatment in ruthenium (a very rare and resistant metal), while the embedded brush – designed according to the performance principles disclosed by the Centro Nazionale Studi Tartufo (National Truffle Study Centre) – has entirely black horsehair bristles.
The brush will be sold at the Alba White Truffle Fair – Cortile della Maddalena, Sala Beppe Fenoglio.
Giacomo: you need to have a nose for truffles…
From the collaboration with Gufram comes the new piece of the kit dedicated to the Alba White Truffle: the truffle brush – conceived by Job Smeets – dedicated to Giacomo Morra’s genius.
Giacomo is the truffle brush conceived by Job Smeets‘ unconventional genius: from his kaleidoscopic and imaginative iconographic catalogue the designer has actually chosen the iconic image of the “nose”, transforming it into a functional and at the same time evocative object of the olfactory experience which, by anticipating the pleasure of taste, is the very essence of the Alba White Truffle.
The sculpted nose with 24 carat gold finish is made by master goldsmiths using the most innovative techniques of high-end jewellery, while the embedded brush features 100% natural tampico fibre bristles, in accordance with the performance principles laid out by Centro Nazionale Studi Tartufo.
Giacomo is not a casual nose, it is Giacomo Morra’s – to whom the name of the object pays tribute – who is considered the creator of the Alba White Truffle Fair and its international successful history. Through a research work carried out with archive photographs, the same shape of Morra’s nose has been reconstructed and reproduced in the Giacomo specimens.
