About The Collection

Balancing classic and contemporary with an element of the unexpected, GamFratesi passionately pursue projects that are subtly embedded with a story. Drawing on their Danish/Italian roots as architects to create well-crafted, conceptual ideas that embrace contrasts.

For their Haiku Sofa, inspiration came from the Japanese genre of poetry by the same name. With Haiku poetry, the aim is to use very few words to convey a myriad of emotions and associations. To capture the essence of an experience with succinct simplicity. Similarly, GamFratesi’s Haiku Sofa is designed with just a few lines to convey a feeling that’s open yet encompassing.

The clear outline of the outer shell is juxtaposed against the soft interior, providing an intimate sense of enclosure. At the same time, the singular seat cushion, loose pillows and upholstered back add an ample feeling of comfort. To highlight the contrast between the outer shell and the interior is the option to mix or match a wide variety of textiles. To complete the picture, the delicate, discrete legs give the impression that the sofa is almost hovering above the ground.

In large, expansive spaces, the Haiku Sofa introduces a cosy sense of comfort, where you can create enclaves of intimacy with clusters of the larger high-back versions of Haiku. For the hospitality sector and retail environments, the smaller size, either in the low-back or high-back version, will add a soothing sense of serenity.

The Haiku Sofa is as poetic as its namesake. An enveloping experience that sets the scene for inner reflection and refuge.




Danish-Italian design duo GamFratesi is quickly becoming a rising star in the design world with their poetically organic, yet defined, style that bridges northern and southern design culture. Contrasts are the central source of their inspiration and together with Fredericia they balance tradition with the unexpected.

GamFratesi studio was founded in 2006 by Danish architect Stine Gam and Italian architect Enrico Fratesi. Although the studio is based in Copenhagen, Stine and Enrico are constantly travelling between Italy and Denmark.

GamFratesi’s designs takes their creative drive from a combination of tradition and the contemporary in an experimental approach with materials and techniques. With their dual traditional background, Stine and Enrico draw on classic Danish furniture and craft traditions, as well as the classic Italian intellectual and conceptual approach. From this cross-cultural substrate they create furniture that respectfully reflects tradition while also featuring subtlety embedded stories, symbols and associations.

GamFratesi are the award winners of the 2015 Finn Juhl Architectural Prize, 2015 Milano Design Award, Guest of Honour at the 2014 Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair, 2013 Elle Decoration International Design Award and the Three-Year Working Grant from the Danish Arts Foundation.
