Beetle Bar/Counter Chair Seat Upholstered by Gubi (Colours Part 2)
Design GamFratesi, 2013
Taking inspiration from the four-legged creature - the beetle, GamFratesi has been looking closely at its characteristic elements: shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside. With its polypropylene plastic shell and seat upholstery, the Beetle Bar/Counter Chair has a light expression with an additional comfort. Thanks to its wide spectrum of colour options and upholstery possibilities, the counter chair encourages for personalisation. Due to its unique design, the seat upholstery can also be changed with time to give the chair a different expression and new life to the interior decoration. The height of the counter chair contributes to its light expression, which makes it blend into any interior naturally and with grace.
The comfortable yet dynamic design makes the Beetle Bar/Counter Chair suitable for multiple environments whether it is in the home or the workplace.
Design partnership, GamFratesi embodies the meeting between Italian and Danish design. The considered and minimal approach of the Danish design tradition is combined with a sense of quirkiness and the desire to tell a story. With GamFratesi the contrasts are often key to their inspiration. They work strictly within the Scandinavian approach to craft, simplicity and functionalism but there is always a strong emotional pull towards concept and the story behind each piece.
When design connoisseurs try to predict who is going to be the next Arne Jacobsen or Hans Wegner, GamFratesi comes high on the list and since the parnership formed in 2006 GamFratesi has received a long list of design awards.
