Beetle Dining Chair with Seat Upholstery and Conical Legs by Gubi

Taking inspiration from the four-legged creature - the beetle, GamFratesi has been looking closely at its characteristic elements: shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside.

With its polypropylene plastic shell and seat upholstery, the Beetle Chair has a light expression with an additional comfort. Thanks to its wide spectrum of colour options and upholstery possibilities, the chair encourages for personalisation. Due to its unique design, the seat upholstery can also be changed with time to give the chair a different expression and new life to the interior decoration. The comfortable yet dynamic design makes the Beetle Chair suitable for multiple environments whether it is in the home or the workplace.

he creation of young design duo, Enrico Fratesi and Stine Gam, the Beetle dining chair is inspired by the shape, shell and structure of the insect.

GamFratesi found the anatomy of the beetle very interesting; the structure is made up of different plates separated by thin sutures, and it is this external shell that supports and protects the animal’s body. All these elements are perfectly linked and work in a fascinating way.

The design of the chair reinterprets the characteristic elements of the beetles’ body: rigid on the outside and soft within, while maintaining comfort and functionality.

The seat and back of the Beetle chair are created using laminated moulded veneer. The chair is upholstered in a luxurious rich green velvet, finished with green velvet piping, while the non-stackable base with conical legs is crafted from brass.

Please advise when ordering if you require the Black, White, Blue Grey, Dark Pink, New Beige, Green or Sweet Pink seat shell.

* Actual colours and design may vary slightly due to different screen settings, the lighting on the photoshoot and other factors.
