GamFratesi | Sorensen Leather

Founded in 2006 by the Danish architect, Stine Gam, and the Italian architect, Enrico Fratesi, GamFratesi draws inspiration from a fusion of tradition and innovation with an experimental approach to materials and techniques. Their work embodies a cross-cultural narrative, enriching contemporary designs, and our LEISURE® collection is a fine example of this.



Together with GamFratesi, we developed LEISURE® – a revolutionary leather which can be used indoors as well as outdoors. LEISURE® exudes an authentic and genuine appearance by capturing the raw beauty and freedom of nature in a protected leather that will last for years on end. GamFratesi curated the colour palette, drawing inspiration from their travels through Europe.

“We didn’t choose the colors… We just looked around, and nature suggested them,” says GamFratesi.




Throughout their exploration, a diverse tapestry of materials and colors revealed itself, telling a unique story and leaving an indelible mark on their journey of discovery.







“Greece welcomed us with the enchanting olive green of Aegina, reflecting the abundance of the land. Italy unveiled a diverse palette, from Amiata’s rustic charm of warm terracotta to Eolie Islands’ profound darkness of their black stones, emanating a sense of ancient power. The volcanic black of Mount Etna stirred awe and mystery, while Portugal’s Alentejo revealed a rich tapestry of brown, reflecting a deep connection to the earth,” says GamFratesi and continues:





“Spain’s Marés invited us to embrace tranquility with its soothing beige, while Bardenas’ golden-brown shades, made us connect with the rugged terrain and its timeless beauty. Valetta’s golden hues provided a warm and soft atmosphere whereas Sweden’s Gotland painted a serene landscape in graceful shades of grey. Lapland’s distinctive bark of birch trees showcased a striking contrast, while Ploumanach’s vibrant red in France ignited passion amidst dramatic coastal landscapes. Denmark’s Raabjerg Mile displayed soft hues of sand, and Fyn greeted us with a cheerful yellow. Finally, Norway’s Trillemarka embraced us with warm shades of brown, symbolizing enduring strength and connection to the land.”
