GamFratesi is a contemporary design success. This Italian-Danish couple fuses warm-blooded Italian form with Danish functionalism in a charming expression that draws the design expression and expectations in new directions. Chameleon is no exception, and the combination of the tight wooden frame and the large inviting leather-covered back cushion creates an expression that is not noisy but crisp and discreetly inviting.Read More
GamFratesiDENMARK / ITALY
Danish-Italian design duo GamFratesi is quickly becoming a rising star in the design world with their poetically organic, yet defined, style that bridges northern and southern design culture.
GamFratesi studio was founded in 2006 by Danish architect Stine Gam and Italian architect Enrico Fratesi. Although the studio is based in Copenhagen, Stine and Enrico are constantly travelling between Italy and Denmark.
GamFratesi’s designs takes their creative drive from a combination of tradition and the contemporary in an experimental approach with materials and techniques. With their dual traditional background, Stine and Enrico draw on classic Danish furniture and craft traditions, as well as the classic Italian intellectual and conceptual approach. From this cross-cultural substrate they create furniture that respectfully reflects tradition while also featuring subtlety embedded stories, symbols and associations.
GamFratesi are the award winners of the 2015 Finn Juhl Architectural Prize, 2015 Milano Design Award, Guest of Honour at the 2014 Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair, 2013 Elle Decoration International Design Award and the Three-Year Working Grant from the Danish Arts Foundation.Learn More
