Gubi Violin Dining Chair, Fully Upholstered
Light, fresh and elegant, the characterful and comfortable Violin Chair from Danish-Italian duo GamFratesi resonates with bold creativity with pure craftsmanship. Like its musical namesake, the Violin Chair’s design is a harmonious duet of form and function. Two parallel lines extending from the backrest echo the strings of a violin, while also providing essential support. Elegant flourishes of detail, such as the gentle curves where the lines meet the horizontal bar, give the chair a refined but unmistakable character, where the classical counterpoints the contemporary.
The gently tapering, powder-coated steel legs support a generous seat and an embracing half-arm backrest, designed such that the chair may be used both as a dining chair or an armchair, without compromising on comfort in either setting.
Available fully upholstered, with a multitude of fabrics and expressions to choose from, or with an upholstered seat and FSC-certified oiled oak or oiled walnut backrest, the dynamic and highly durable Violin Chair can be tuned to match your interior style and vision, whether at home or hospitality settings.
Materials & finishes Powder-coated steel frame with oiled wood seat and backrest. Fully upholstered in Dedar Karakorum (42% WO, 33% CV, 24% CO, 1% PA), Gabriel Tempt (100% polyester) or Backhausen Aurin (100% new wool) fabric. Available in a range of colours, Standard Glides.

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.
