Beetle Ottoman - Fully Upholstered, Conic Base by Gubi
Design GamFratesi, 2013
The Beetle Ottoman is adding an extra level of comfort to the Beetle Lounge Chair, but is expressive enough to stand alone and have its own saying in the interior decoration. The Beetle Ottoman carries strong references to the designer GamFratesi's inspirational source; the insect world, more specific the world of beetles.
The design of the Beetle Ottoman reinterprets the characteristic elements of the beetles’ sections: shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside, and the result is an ottoman that cunningly interprets the shell of this four-legged creature. The wide range of upholstery options allows matching the current interior or add a splash of colour.
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 partnership formed in 2006 GamFratesi has received a long list of design awards.
The Beetle Ottoman is fully upholstered with a conic base. Decorative piping is applied in a matching fabric. If you would prefer leather piping (Black or Brandy), please indicate your choice in the order notes.
