Designed by GamFratesi for Lightyears
GamFratesi’s inspiration for the Suspence™ series has been translating a movement into a physical shape.
GamFratesi’s inspiration for the Suspence™ lamp series has been translating a movement into a physical shape. The shape of the lamp has been created by pulling – an elementary movement involving physical force. This tensile force is visible at the top of the lamp, where you see the little tip. Suspence™ is organic with a natural soft curve. Suspence™ pendant is designed with a monochrome look; the shade and cord are perceived as an uninterrupted whole. An infinity diffuser at the bottom of the lamp concentrates the light, prevents glare and contributes to creating an elegant optical illusion – hence the name infinity diffuser.
Scandinavian functionalism and clear communication of the ideas behind the design are the key words for GamFratesi’s design. The design duo was formed in 2006, and consists of the Danish architect Stine Gam and the Italian architect Enrico Fratesi.
GamFratesi’s design takes its creative power from a fusion of tradition and innovation along with an experimental approach to the selected materials and techniques. With their cross-cultural background, Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi thus draw from both classic Danish design and the tradition of craftsmanship, and the classic Italian intellectual and conceptual approach. With their minimalist, refined and expressive design form, they are able to tell a unique story with their design. In the process of creating designs for Lightyears, GamFratesi has worked with a conceptual and functional approach to lighting.
