Beetle Meeting Chair - Un-Upholstered, 4-Star Base by Gubi
Design GamFratesi, 2013
With the introduction of the un-upholstered Beetle Chair, the collection has bloomed into a chair series with unlimited possibilities. The Beetle Chair is no longer only an upholstered chair but also available with a polypropylene plastic shell, giving it a lighter expression with notable durability at a lower price point. The 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 inspiration of the Beetle 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 chair reinterprets the characteristic elements of the beetles’ sections: shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside.
This version of the Beetle Meeting Chair features a coloured shell and a 4-Star base available with or without castors.
