Icon Talks at CDW: GamFratesi 11.05.15

The Danish-Italian design duo will be speaking at Icon's House of Culture during Clerkenwell Design Week


Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi are the Danish-Italian design team behind popular designs such as the Beetle Chair for GUBI (2013) and the Chariot table for Casamania (2012).

By fusing two design dynasties – Scandinavian craft and tradition with the Italian intellectual and conceptual approach – the pair seem to have found an elegant rationale that fits industrial design aims as well as interiors and exhibition designs.

Last year, GamFratesi designed Wheel, a simple circular room divider for Offecct, and Manga, a characterful companion to the Cartoon chair for Swedese, and were guests of honour at Stockholm Furniture Fair. Last month, they curated the Mindcraft exhibition of conceptual, experimental Danish design at a religious cloister in central Milan.

As well as taking part in Icon's talks programme, GamFratesi will present products for GUBI at Old Sessions House.

GamFratesi will be speaking at Icon's House of Culture in Clerkenwell at 2pm on Wednesday, 20 May. Click here to RSVP to the event and click here for the full line-up of talks
