Violin Chair

GamFratesi, 2021


The Violin Chair is a light and contemporary half-arm dining chair that epitomizes GamFratesi’s craftsmanship, creativity, and material understanding. The name references the two parallel lines that that extend from the backrest to a horizontal bar below the seat, evoking two parallel strings on a violin, or even a tuning fork. It was these two lines, in the form of two pencil marks on the very earliest sketch, that provided the initial spark of inspiration for the design.The elegantly tapered legs support a generous rounded seat and an embracing backrest , hat extends to partially support the forearm, elbow, or hands as an occasional armrest. This dual functionality makes the Violin Chair the perfect hybrid of dining chair and armchair. It allows you to easily twist around to speak to the person sitting next to you at dinner, while still remaining comfortable long after dessert and coffee are served.
