Karui trays

By Skultuna


  • Description

    The Karui trays are designed by GamFratesi for Skultuna. The trays are made using metal spinning, a classic Skultuna production technique. The leather comes from the leading Swedish tannery Tärnsjö, famous for their high quality leather and located close to Skultuna in Sweden.

    Stine Gam on the design philosophy for the trays: The trays are called Karui / 軽い which in Japanese means soft (in relation to the leather part) but also light (the trays have a light aesthetic). Japanese gives other meanings as well, such "easy/easily" "quick perhaps" which is the informal feeling we want with the trays, place and take our personal things on the tray becoming a functional and personal easy everyday gesture.

    Designed 2015.

    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.
