Danish and Italian! The union of the two cultures is a strong element in Gam-Fratesi’s design, prompted by simple everyday situations from their cultures in a fusion of technology, poetry and tradition. Like the Swedese easy chair Cartoon, inspired by the spontaneous expression in children’s drawings, and interesting much because of the meeting between its cartoon-like proportions, the austere Scandinavian style, precise detailing and a traditional high-quality work process.
Stine Gam was born in Copenhagen in 1975 and graduated from the School of Architecture in Aarhus, Denmark, in 2006 with an MA in furniture design.
