Beetle Meeting Chair w/ Castor Base Unupholstered by Gubi
Design GamFratesi, 2013
The Beetle Chair has since its introduction in 2013 being well received by end-consumers as well as interior architects. Due to its appealing design, outstanding comfort and unique customisation possibilities, the chair can be seen in many of the most renown restaurants around the world. The fully upholstered chair carries strong references to the design duo GamFratesi's inspirational source; the insect world, more specific the world of beetles. Not just the name indicates their inspiration, but also the characteristic elements of the beetles’ sections have been interpreted - shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside. The wide range of upholstery options and different bases make it possible to put your personal touch to the chair and create one of its kind.
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.
Polypropylene plastic shell. The steel base comes in a non-stackable base with conical legs available in black powder coated steel.
