Gamfratesi’s new Targa Lounge Chair for Thonet Vienna

Gebrüder Thonet Vienna GmbH, now known as Wiener GTV Design had invited Gamfratesi to create a small collection that reflected the clear tradition of bending wood and woven cane, but with contemporary aestethic and proportions.

The result is a sofa, chair and small writing desk. The collection has been presented during the Salone del Mobile in Milan 2015.

The Targa sofa was winner of the EDIDA – Elle Decor International Design Award as Best Furniture of the year in 2016

GamFratesi is the Danish/Italian design duo Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi. Their office is in Copenhagen.

Each of the pieces of this collection comes in striking but neutral colors that are bound to make a statement. The chairs are made of bent beech with an upholstered backrest and Vienna straw border. Soft and curvy, Targa is sleek and luxurious, but not too stuffy. Its round shape encourages intimate and cozy socializing, and is perfect for residential spaces with an unconventional twist.
