The TS side table features a circular marble top in Bianco Carrara, Nero Marquina, Verde Guatemala or Marrone Emperador, atop a geometric lacquered black frame. The tables come in three heights, so that they work together as a group and can also be used separately.

Beetle Bar Stool

An iteration of the Beetle Chair introduced in Milan last year, the Beetle Bar Chair offers the same comfort at bar height, something that traditional bar stools often lack.

Masculo Swivel

The Masculo chair was GamFratesi's first design to make it into production. They have now added a swivel base, which gives the chair a new role in business environments and home offices.

Every year curators Caterina Mosca and Valerio Castelli invite selected designers to tell their "urban stories" in unusual locations. This year the event is at Palazzo Litta in Corso Magenta.

GamFratesi designers Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi anticipate that the Baroque setting will provide an appropriate backdrop for their work. "We've often been inspired by art, whilst also being aware of the heritage of design," said Fratesi.

    With its nod to Wegner, GamFratesi’s Masculo chair is a winner in both form and function. They certainly hit the ground running.
