GamFratesi's Beetle Chair design takes its creative drive from a fusion of tradition and renewal in an experimental approach to its chosen materials and techniques. With their traditional dual background, Stine Gam (born 1975) and Enrico Fratesi (born 1978) draw on the classic Danish furniture and craft tradition and the classic Italian intellectual and conceptual approach. Understanding a tradition and addressing it actively in the workshop makes it possible to expand on it. From this cross-cultural substrate, they create furniture that respectfully reflects tradition while featuring unique embedded stories, symbols and associations, often expressed in a minimalist idiom.
