GamFratesi Masculo Lounge Chair w/ Sledge Base by Gubi
Design GamFratesi, 2008
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.
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.
