Gubi Ioi Mirror
Drawing on geometric Art Deco references with a contemporary design language, GamFratesi designed the IOI Wall Mirror, a timeless piece, ideal for contemporary audiences and interiors. The ‘sticks and sphere’ motif is reflected in the shape of the letters that form their name, pronounced ‘i-o-i.’
The brass sphere works as both a functional ‘spacer’ to strengthen the dual pipe-like mirror struts, and as an intimately considered signature detail or ‘pause’ that emphasizes both its own materiality and the careful attention paid to the spaces between the elements of each piece. Related to the IOI Collection tables, but also independent, the IOI Wall Mirror is in its element above a console table in a residential setting or as a sculptural statement at the entrance of a corporate or hospitality space
- Size Description
GamFratesi Design Studio was established in 2006. Stine Gam (born 1975) and Enrico Fratesi (born 1978) belong to the latest generation of furniture architects. Stine is Danish, while Enrico is Italian and together they represent a new interpretation of the meeting between Danish and international design traditions. GamFratesi's design takes its creative drive from a fusion of tradition and renewal and in an experimental approach to their chosen materials and techniques. With their dual traditional background, they draw on the classic Danish furniture and craft tradition as well as the 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 furniture that respectfully reflects tradition while also featuring unique embedded stories, symbols and associations, often expressed in a minimalist idiom.
