GamFratesi Masculo Chair w/ Sledge Base by Gubi
Design GamFratesi, 2008
The Masculo Chair by GamFratesi marries the idea of Danish elegance and simplicity with Italian refinement and playfulness. The backrest of Masculo is almost overly large, which call to mind a bull, and appears to float in the air and challenges all senses. This is supported by slender legs that makes the whole chair almost sculptural and exciting to the eye. The upholstered chair ensures high level of comfort, while its clean legs and sophisticated form lend the chair a graceful presence.
Design partnership, GamFratesi embodies the meeting between Italian and Danish design. The considered and minimal approach of the Danish design tradition is combined with a sense of quirkiness and the desire to tell a story. With GamFratesi the contrasts are often key to their inspiration. They work strictly within the Scandinavian approach to craft, simplicity and functionalism but there is always a strong emotional pull towards concept and the story behind each piece.
When design connoisseurs try to predict who is going to be the next Arne Jacobsen or Hans Wegner, GamFratesi comes high on the list and since the parnership formed in 2006 GamFratesi has received a long list of design awards.
With GamFratesi's Masculo lounge, designed in 2008, and Masculo chair, designed in 2011, we see the emergence of a new, potentially classic furniture series from Gubi.
The rod structure of the lounge chair is made from steel, powder coated in black or in chrome.
The seat and back is available in upholstered fabric or leather.
