  • Description

    Haiku is a Japanese form of poetry, where so much is expressed in a few simple lines. The same is true for Gamfratesi's poetically designed sofa that was launched by Fredericia in 2012. Haiku was received to so much success in its first years, that in 2015 Gamfratesi added a low back version, Haiku Low, to the Collection.

    In Haiku a protectively encompassing outer shell is combined with a softer interior, providing an intimate enclosure. Haiku is an enveloping sofa that invites reflection and refuge. Gamfratesi is Danish/Italian design duo Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi, and references to their inherited juxtaposition of design cultures are easily identified in Haiku. The design is clear and well conceived, incorporating an interesting twist that gives the sofas a modern appearance. The contrast between the enveloping outer shell and the soft, intimate inner is highlighted by a contrasting combination of textiles. With delicate legs, Haiku seems to almost hover above the ground.

    GamFratesi

    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. Enrico Fratesi was born in Pesaro, Italy, in 1978, studied architecture at the University of Florence and graduated with an MA in Industrial Design from the University of Ferrara.

    GamFratesi Design Studio, founded in 2006, is based in Copenhagen, although the team constantly travels between Italy and Denmark, researching and develop­ing new projects. GamFratesi has participated in exhibitions in Milan, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Cologne, New York, Shang­hai, London and Berlin.
