The Bat Dining Chair is created with a Scandinavian approach to crafts, simplicity and functionalism by Danish-Italian design-duo GamFratesi. The embracing shell with armrests equally embodies both aesthetics and comfort while carrying strong references to the interesting and distinctive shape of a bat’s wingspan.
The wide range of upholstery options provides for a personalised expression that makes the Bat Dining Chair fit perfectly into a variety of public and private contexts.
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.
