Beetle Lounge Chair - Fully Upholstered, Conic Base by Gubi
Design GamFratesi, 2013
The Beetle Lounge Chair is with its comfortable design and generously proportioned silhouette, the perfect lounge chair for relaxation at any contemporary home. The Beetle Lounge Chair carries strong references to GamFratesi's inspirational source; the four-legged insect, the beetle. The design of the Beetle Lounge Chair reinterprets the characteristic elements of the beetles’ sections: shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside.
The wide range of upholstery options allow personalisation, making sure it matches the interior in the most decorative and beautiful way possible. Add the Beetle Ottoman to complete the look and make the seating even more comfortable.
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.
This version of the Beetle Lounge Chair 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.
