gamfratesi

the design studio gamfratesi combines the serious talents of danish architect stine gam and italian architect enrico fratesi. each is cognitive of the storied backgrounds and history of their cultures, of architecture and design within their cultures. & according to gamfratesi's studio page, "understanding a tradition and addressing it actively in the workshop makes it possible to expand on it"...
founded in 2006, gamfratesi is based in cophenhagen, though stine & enrico travel often to both italy and denmark "for development and research of new products." stine & enrico claim that in designing, they "explore the diverse border zone between harmony and disharmony."

i'm not sure how to interpret that except that they push the boundaries, of expectation, of even perhaps, what's standard or appropriate or desired, offering you fresh chances, with each design, to dare to be different, to catch you off guard, to throw you a design curve ball. i love that! enjoy...
