GamFratesi design

In 2006 the GamFratesi Studio was founded by the joint venture of Danish Architect Stine Gam and Italian architect Enrico Fratesi. This modern generation of furniture designers embraces a new interpretation of the integration of Danish and Italian design. The creative drive is a combined fusion of historic design and revision of the style to present a all new understated style experimenting with different materials and processes.

With the tradition of craft Danish furniture combined with the classic Italian conceptual approach their combined knowledge comes together to create new unique forms. It is this knowledge combination that creates this possibility of expanding ideas. From this cross-cultural partnership, they create furniture that respectfully reflect tradition while also featuring unique embedded histories, symbols and associations, often expressed in a minimalist concept or idea. “Our work is balancing between the traditional and surprising. Often it takes just a small detail to achieve or break an expression, and we are very curious about that. We work strictly with the Scandinavian approach to crafts, it is minimalistic fostering simplicity and functionalism, but there always happenss to be a strong emotion to concept and story behind each piece or creation.”
