Beetle Bar/Counter Chair Unupholstered by Gubi
Design GamFratesi, 2013
With the introduction of the un-upholstered Beetle Bar/Counter Chair, the collection has bloomed into a chair series with unlimited possibilities. The Beetle Bar/Counter Chair is no longer only an upholstered bar chair but also available with a polypropylene plastic shell, giving it a lighter expression with notable durability at a lower price point. The bar chair’s subtle matte texture offers a soft tactility where its outstanding sitting comfort is obtained. Thanks to the wide spectrum of colour and base options, the un-upholstered Beetle is an ideal solution for both formal and informal spaces alike. Mix and match between the seven harmonious colours to create a personal expression. The height of the bar chair contributes to its light expression, which makes it blend into any interior naturally and with grace.
The inspiration of the Beetle Bar/Counter Chair was found in the insect world as GamFratesi has been looking closely at the anatomy, aesthetics and movement of a beetle. The design of the bar chair reinterprets the characteristic elements of the beetles’ sections: shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside.
This version of the Beetle Bar/Counter features a plastic shell and a metal conic base.
