Beetle plastic dining chair, wooden legs

By Gubi


  • Description

    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.

    Danish and Italian! The union of the two cultures is a strong element in Gam-Fratesi’s design, prompted by simple everyday situations from their cultures in a fusion of technology, poetry and trad­ition. Like the Swedese easy chair Cartoon, inspired by the spontaneous expression in children’s drawings, and interesting much because of the meeting between its cartoon-like proportions, the austere Scan­di­navian style, precise detailing and a traditional high-quality work process.

    Stine Gam was born in Copenhagen in 1975 and graduated from the School of Architecture in Aarhus, Denmark, in 2006 with an MA in furniture design. Enrico Fratesi was born in Pesaro, Italy, in 1978, studied architecture at the University of Florence and graduated with an MA in Industrial Design from the University of Ferrara.

    GamFratesi Design Studio, founded in 2006, is based in Copenhagen, although the team constantly travels between Italy and Denmark, researching and develop­ing new projects. GamFratesi has participated in exhibitions in Milan, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Cologne, New York, Shang­hai, London and Berlin.
