Morris Chair Collection
The MORRIS chair, by the creative duo GamFratesi, reinterprets the classic Viennese seat, by using new proportions which broaden its perspective, suggesting new references to design icons. The structure is made up of steam-bent solid beech elements and includes an upholstered chair with a woven cane backrest, available in two heights. The juxtaposition of the two versions gives a funny movement to the dining room’s horizon, playing with heights and colours, suggesting irreverent furnishing solutions both in home environments and contract spaces.
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.
