GamFratesi took inspiration from the shapes of branches and leaves to create the smoothly curved Edaha chair for Japanese brand Koyori.

For their Edaha Chair, Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi derived inspiration from nature. Its criss-cross legs reference the branches of trees and the shape of the veneer covered seat mimics the shape of a leaf. Although combined in a manner that is usually not found verbatim in nature, it reminds users and viewers of the intricate patterns that are usually found in nature.

"We wanted to create a structure that gently supported the suspended seat just like a leaf on a branch. The project was an industrial challenge, a concept that would challenge materials and technologies."

GamFratesi, meanwhile, hope that their collaboration with Koyori will bring a piece of Japan to an international audience. ‘We hope that in their everyday life people will feel the respect, passion, and quality radiated by the craftsmanship of the Koyori products.’
