Launchpad: Young designers combine fire and fashion
by Martina Metzner | 4/18/2017
Exhibiting at the Salone Satellite has certainly boosted the one or other career. So what does the up-and-coming talent look like?
Following the 2009 launch of the Masculo lounge, Jacob Gubi and GamFratesi came up with the idea of producing a modern chair with armrest that would provide the natural comfort inherent in the lounge chair. The quality, aesthetics and sitting comfort, which are so successfully combined in the Masculo lounge, are now echoed in the Masculo chair. The new chair design is marked by contrast. The distinctive, expressive backrest expresses an almost aggressive masculinity, whilst the slender supporting metal frame simultaneously embraces sophisticated, quasi-feminine detailing.
