In 2006, Danish architect Stine Gam and Italian architect Enrico Fratesi founded their agency GamFratesi in Copenhagen.
Stine Gam was born in Copenhagen in 1975 and studied architecture in Aarhus, Denmark until 2006. During her studies she both studied and worked as an architect in Italy and Tokyo.
Enrico Fratesi was born in Pesaro in 1978 and studied architecture at the University of Florence and Ferrara, graduating in 2007. During his studies he studied and worked as an architect in both Stockholm and Denmark.
The work of GamFratesi is based around a constant, curious dialogue, and on their respective cultures. They favour a Scandinavian approach to craftsmanship and simplicity, with a strong, appreciable accent on the conceptual research behind their work.
GamFratesi have been awarded numerous important prizes such as the Vico Magistretti Award from DePadova, "best danish designer 2009" and "Walk the Plank award 2009". Their creations have recently been displayed at the Kunstindustrimuseet (Museum of Art and Design), Copenhagen and the Artmuseum Trapholt Kolding, as well as in collective exhibitions such as Mindcraft Milan, the Royal Danish Embassy, Tokyo and the Dansk Design Center Copenhagen.
