Design GamFratesi, 2013

The Beetle Bar/Counter 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 bar chair can be seen in many of the most renown restaurants around the world. 

The fully upholstered bar/counter 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 height of the bar/counter chair contributes to its light expression, which makes it blend into any interior naturally and with grace. The wide range of upholstery options and different bases make it possible to put your personal touch to the bar 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.

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.


The seat and back are in laminated molded veneer. This fully upholstered chair is available in a wide range of fabrics or leathers. Piping in black leather, cognac leather or matching fabric. Plastic glides included, felt glides available on request.
