GamFratesi’s Silhouette Duo Sofa series is characterised by the smooth curve of the sofa’s back, which seamlessly combines a strong character with a simple, organic expression.
With an angular front view and defining piping details, the sofa appears compact and economical with space, yet light and spacious and offers generous seating. As with other members of the Silhouette family, this design comprises sofas in different sizes and heights, with legs in steel or solid wood, but the Duo variant combines two different textiles – one for the back, and one for the cushions and mattress. There are a number of selected textiles and combinations to choose from. The different configurations and strong structural language make the sofa a natural choice for defining space and creating intimacy in large and small areas in private and public contexts.
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 Tuluo Table.
