The Masculo Chair by GamFratesi marries the idea of Danish elegance and simplicity with Italian refinement and playfulness. The backrest of Masculo is almost overly large, which call to mind a bull, and appears to float in the air and challenges all senses. This is supported by slender legs that makes the whole chair almost sculptural and exciting to the eye. The upholstered chair ensures high level of comfort, while its clean legs and sophisticated form lend the chair a graceful presence.
GamFratesi is a Copenhagen-based design agency comprising architect Stine Gam (born in Denmark in 1975) and industrial designer Enrico Fratesi (born in Italy in 1978), who met while studying architecture in Italy and founded their design agency GamFratesi Studio in Copenhagen in 2006. Using their dual cultural backgrounds, they fuse classic Danish craft traditions with a timeless Italian intellectual and conceptual approach. Their designs are characterised by an honest, natural expression, and the desire to communicate a story through the use of tradition, innovation and functionality. GamFratesi have received international recognition and they have exhibited work all over the world. For Hay, they have designed the Silhouette Sofa and Tulou Table.
