Designed by the design duo GamFratesi, the Gent Dining Chair is characterised by the contradiction between Scandinavian elegance and Italian dynamic lines. Strongly connected to the Masculo Chair, the new Gent Dining Chair is characterised by a distinctive backrest, expressing an almost aggressive masculinity, whilst at the same time being gentle and embracing.
The Gent Dining Chair possesses a playful balance between formality and whimsy, offering a modern twist on the classic dining chair that evokes the image of the 1950’s.
Its appearance is ultimately light and simple - and with no armrests, the Gent Dining Chair is practical for fitting around the table in both restaurants and private homes.
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.
