Inspired by the 1950s Lido is a comfortable basket-like nest, with a round seat enveloped by a curved line that defines the padded body. The X-shaped sculptural base is its strong distinguishing mark. The armchair is available in one size and with two types of bases. The family also includes dining and lounge armchairs with legs, and coffee tables with the iconic X-shaped base.
GamFratesi Studio was established in 2006 by the Danish architect Stine Gam (b. 1975) and the Italian architect Enrico Fratesi (b.1978). Drawing on classic Danish furniture and craft tradition as well as the timeless Italian intellectual and conceptual approach, they create furniture that respectfully reflects history while evoking modern narratives rich in symbols and associations, often expressed in a minimalist idiom.
Now helmed by the third generation of the Minotti family, Rodolfo Dordoni guarantees the modern-classic aspect of the portfolio while collaborations with designers including Frenchman Christophe Delcourt and Japan’s nendo bring in fresh perspective.
