A sofa inspired by the formal expression of a Japanese haiku poem, a lamp motivated by the buttons and knobs of vintage stereo amplifiers, a ladder built like a drafter’s compass. These experiments and non-traditional ideas are what make GamFratesi such highly sought-after collaborators; the pair has worked with Gubi, Fredericia Furniture, Ligne Roset, and Lightyears, and were the subject of the 2014 book This is GamFratesi written by Daniel Golling and Gustaf Kjellin.

Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi founded GamFratesi in 2006 as a joint outlet for their distinct cultural design idioms. Together they fuse their respective backgrounds – the Danish traditions of craftsmanship and form and the Italian intellectual and conceptual approach to design – to create distinctive results. The duo have the notable achievement of winning awards every year since their founding; their designs have garnered more prizes and grants than can be counted on all your fingers and toes.
