Gubi Beetle Chair Front Upholstered Shell Conic Base
Looking closely at the anatomy of the beetle insect, characterised by its solid outside and soft inside, the front upholstered Beetle Chair possesses all attributes. The front upholstered Beetle Chair holds the same soft core as the fully upholstered version, giving it an outstanding comfort while the contrasting outer in polypropylene plastic functions as a protective shell. The Beetle can exude a personal adornment with an upholstery of your choice. Due to its unique design, the front upholstery can also be changed with time to give the chair a different expression and new life to the interior decoration.
GamFratesi has reinterpreted the characteristic elements of the beetles' sections when designing the Beetle Chair: shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside. The comfortable yet dynamic design makes the chair suitable for multiple environments whether it is in the home or the workplace.
Available as front upholstered in seven colours. Black, chrome, brass or black chrome base.
Plastic glides included, felt glides available on request.

GamFratesi Design Studio was established in 2006. Stine Gam (born 1975) and Enrico Fratesi (born 1978) belong to the latest generation of furniture architects. Stine is Danish, while Enrico is Italian and together they represent a new interpretation of the meeting between Danish and international design traditions. GamFratesi's design takes its creative drive from a fusion of tradition and renewal and in an experimental approach to their chosen materials and techniques. With their dual traditional background, they draw on the classic Danish furniture and craft tradition as well as the classic Italian intellectual and conceptual approach. Understanding a tradition and addressing it actively in the workshop makes it possible to expand on it. From this cross-cultural substrate they create furniture that respectfully reflects tradition while also featuring unique embedded stories, symbols and associations, often expressed in a minimalist idiom.
