each year, the stockholm furniture & light fair selects a ‘guest of honour’ who is commissioned to develop the lounge area of the event. 2014 sees GamFratesi taking the challenge in which they have created ‘balance’, an installation of the danish-italian studio’s work, arranged in such a way that creates an equilibrium between life, work and play.

for us, as for most people, each day is a struggle to find balance in life. the exhibition we have created at the stockholm furniture & light air is meant to remind us of that. at the same time, our installation emphasizes the movement of the fair’s visitors through the venue. elements hung from the ceiling of the enormous entrance hall, divide it into smaller, more intimate lounge areas. the exhibition combines textiles and metal elements. in addition to being sculptures and room dividers, the elements are also sound absorbers, a feature which is invaluable in such a large space,’ says stine gam and enrico fratesi of GamFratesi

‘balance’ presents GamFratesi’s collaborations with various international furniture manufacturers including their ‘rewrite’ desk for ligne roset, ‘compass’ hanger for casamania and ‘haiku’ sofa for FREDERICIA.
