Gent Dining Chair
Designed by the design duo GamFratesi, the Gent Dining Chair is characterised by the contradiction between Scandinavian elegance and Italian dynamic lines. Strongly connected to the Masculo Chair, the new Gent Dining Chair is characterised by a distinctive backrest, expressing an almost aggressive masculinity, whilst at the same time being gentle and embracing.
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.
