GamFratesi is the result of a partnership between Danish designer Stine Gam (born 1975) and Italian designer Enrico Fratesi (born 1978). Many of the studio's creations play with the heritage of classics by Hans Wegner and Arne Jacobsen, altering proportions, materials and construction methods to create new furniture with fresh aesthetics. The Beetle stool was born of this research into the heritage of the great masters of Scandinavian design.

Stine Gam was born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1975. She is educated architect with a master in furniture design. Enrico Fratesi was born in Pesaro, Italy in 1978. He has studied architecture and graduated with a master in industrial design. Gam and Fratesi gained experience as architects in several architecture studio in Japan and Scandinavia before establishing their own design studio in 2006.
The studio is based in Copenhagen, though Gam and Fratesi are continuously traveling between Italy and Denmark for development and research of new projects. GamFratesi’s design takes its creative drive from a fusion of tradition and renewal and in an experimental approach to their chosen materials and techniques. With their dual traditional background, Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi draw on the classic Danish furniture and craft tradition as well as 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 also featuring unique embedded stories, symbols and associations, often expressed in a minimalist idiom.
GamFratesi aim to create furniture that illustrates the process and the techniques that created it, and which reflect a persistent exploration of the diverse border zone between harmony and disharmony. GamFratesi have received significant awards including Elle Decoration International design award (EDIDA) as International Young Designer of the Year 2013, Guest of Honor Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair 2014, selection Compasso D’oro / ADI , Nomination Best Designer Icon design award 2014, Vico Magistretti Award by De Padova, the Chicago Atheneum Museum of Architecture’s Good Design Award, Best Danish Designer 2012 by Bolig magasinet, ‘Walk the Plank award 2009’ and Best Danish Designer 2009 by RUM.
Their work have been shown in numerous exhibitions, Triennale di Milano, solo exhibitions at the Museum of Art and Design Copenhagen, Art Museum Trapholt Kolding, Palazzo Litta, Shanghai as well as collective exhibitions Mindcraft in Milano, Royal Danish Embassy in Tokyo, and Design Miami/Basel.
