Designed by the design duo GamFratesi, the Masculo Lounge Chair is characterised by the contradiction between Scandinavian elegance and Italian dynamic lines. The aesthetics, craftsmanship, solidity and sitting comfort are successfully combined and result in an inviting, upholstered lounge chair. The distinctive, semicircular back- and armrest express an almost aggressive masculinity, and at the same time soft and embracing, whilst the finest legs simultaneously contributes with quasi-feminine and sophisticated detailing.
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.
