Gamfratesi studio was founded in 2006 by danish architect Stine Gam and italian architect Enrico Fratesi. the studio is based in Copenhagen.
GamFratesi’s design takes its creative drive from a fusion of tradition and renewal and in an experimental approach to their chosen materials and techniques. With their dual traditional background, Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi draw on the classic Danish furniture and craft tradition as well as the classic Italian intellectual and conceptual approach. Understanding a tradition and addressing it actively in the workshop makes it possible to expand on it. From this cross-cultural substrate they create furniture that respectfully reflects tradition while also featuring unique embedded stories, symbols and associations, often expressed in a minimalist idiom. GamFratesi aim to create furniture that illustrates the process and the techniques that created it, and which reflect a persistent exploration of the diverse border zone between harmony and disharmony.
GamFratesi has received a long list of awards for their work such as: 'Planken Ud Prisen' / 'Walk the Plank Award', 'Best Upcomming Designer in Denmark' by Bolig Magazine 2008, 3rd prize in 'Vico Magistretti' design competition by De Padova 2007, 2nd prize in design competition by Erik Jorgensen 2007, etc. As well they have been selected and participated in numerous exhibitions all over the world; Milano, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Cologne, New York, Shanghai, London Berlin etc.
