YUH lamp

GamFratesi, 2017

Inspired by the shade of the AJ lamp designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1957, the designer duo GamFratesi, one of the most creative of the moment, designed the Yuh Lamp collection, a name which is the phonetic translation of the word you. By choosing this name, GamFratesi wanted to focus on the personal and adaptable dimension of Yuh lamps, simple and easy to use. The shade rises and drops, and it rotates horizontally and vertically.

An extremely discreet dimmer button is placed at the top of the axe. Launched as a table lamp, a wall lamp and a floor lamp, like Jacobsen's AJ – its inspiration –, Yuh fits perfectly into the historical heritage of Louis Poulsen. The light source is made up of a latest-generation LED board, which is very energy efficient, comfortable for the eyes and extremely durable (several decades in normal use).

GamFratesi

Born in Copenhagen (Denmark) in 1975, Stine Gam holds a degree in architecture and a master's degree in Furniture Design. Enrico Fratesi is an Italian born in 1978. After studying architecture, he obtained a master's degree in Industrial Design. 

Gam and Fratesi gained experience in several architectural firms in Japan and Scandinavia before opening their own design studio in 2006. Their firm is based in Copenhagen, although Gam and Fratesi are constantly on the move between Italy and Denmark for the development and the research of new projects. 

The language of GamFratesi develops as a fusion between tradition and renewal, in an experimental approach on materials and techniques. With their dual tradition, Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi design on the basis of classic Danish classic craft-based furniture, incorporating an Italian approach to the typically conceptual project. The results are projects that reflect tradition while incorporating stories, symbols and associations, often expressed through minimalist language. GamFratesi aims to create products that clearly illustrate the process and techniques that created it, reflecting a persistent exploration of the line between harmony and discord. 

GamFratesi has received important awards: Elle Decoration International (EDIDA) design award as International Young Designer of the Year 2013, Guest of Honor Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair 2014, Sélection Compas en Or / ADI, Nomination Best Designer Icon Design Award 2014, Prix Vico Magistretti by De Padova, Good Design Award by Chicago Atheneum Museum of Architecture, Best Danish Designer 2012 by Bolig Magasin, 'Walk the Plank award 2009’ and Best Danish designer 2009 by RUM.
