Our means are a simple and beautiful design. Our purpose is to create an attractive ambiance that affects people and spaces.
We design to shape light.
The Yuh family of fixtures primarily provides glare-free downward directed light. The angle of the shade can be adjusted to optimize light distribution. A slim opening in the top of the shade provides soft, ambient upward illumination. A mechanical system provides great freedom of movement, so the light can always be set in the ideal position in the workspace, living room, etc. Built-in LED technology provides a high quality of light with stepless dimming from 100% to 15%. Optional timer capability automatically turns off the light after a chosen duration of 4 or 8 hours. Returns to the last dim level setting when switched on. A button at the top of the tube acts as a switch and dimmer.
GamFratesi’s designs take their creative drive from a fusion of tradition and innovation in an experimental approach to their chosen materials and techniques. Each with their own traditional background, Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi draw from classic Danish furniture and craftsmanship as well as a classic Italian intellectual and conceptual approach. Understanding a tradition and addressing it actively in the workshop makes it possible to expand on it. From this cross-cultural substrate, they create designs that respectfully reflects tradition, while also featuring unique embedded stories, symbols, and associations often expressed through minimalism.
GamFratesi was founded in 2006 by Danish architect Stine Gam and Italian architect Enrico Fratesi. They met at the Department of Architecture at the University of Ferrara in Northern Italy in 2004 and have since studied together at the Aarhus School of Architecture in Denmark. GamFratesi has a studio in Copenhagen.
