Inspiring Conversations

Part Cave, Part Cocoon.

Designed by Danish furniture designers Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi, or better known as GamFratesi, Rewrite is an isolating work bubble which doubles up as a satellite desk that can satiate a person’s need for concentration. Deep in thoughts and physically deep in an open semi cocoon, this desk is appropriate for times when you just want to shut yourself away from the distractions of the world. Or more realistically, in open concept offices. Public places like these fall in this category too.

In our design of the desktop Rewrite we have worked on creating a meeting between something well known and something surprising. The table is therefore traditional in its form and material, but when the big screen is added, both proportions and historical references are brought out of balance. In the table functional elements have been integrated as a white lacquered metal box, which is attached under the table in order to hide cables and transformers, and the cable exit in the tabletop is white lacquered too.

The screen is upholstered and covered with textile because of its visual and acoustic characteristics. It has a cave-like shape and creates a secure and intimate sphere, which partially closes out disturbing light and sounds. It has a doublesided acoustic function that protects against noise from the outside as well as from the inside.

For their flair and reputable skills, the Walk the Plank Award 2009 was presented to GamFratesi. This prestigious Danish award commemorates furniture designers who are able to work in accordance with a refined craftsman-like standard and a thorough aesthetic appreciation.

Together with the duo’s other creations, Rewrite will be displayed at a solo exhibition at the Danish Museum of Art and Design from September to December 2009 and at Trapholt Museum from March to September 2010.
