The well-known Beetle chair is a unique result due to the collaboration between the Italian and a Danish designer: the designer duo Gam-fratesi. The Gam-fratesi duo consists of Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi, and they took their inspiration for the well-known Beetle collection from the insect world. They investigated the anatomy of insects, including the beetle, and based the design for the iconic Beetle chair on that.
For example, the chair has been given an organic shape with a sturdy hard shell (armor) and thin legs for an airy effect. Gam-fratesi's designs always have a traditional design with surprising modern aspects. This also applies to the Beetle chair. The dining room chair has an elegant look and is also very comfortable, with a backrest that moves well. A design chair that easily fits into everyone's interior. The Beetle chair combines effortlessly with modern and classic wooden dining tables, or tables made of steel, glass dining tables.
The Beetle chair was introduced in 2012 and has since been a great success in everyone's home, and they are also very popular in restaurants and hotels. The Beetle chair comes in many different variants: for the base there is a choice of thin conical steel legs (in matt black, chrome-black, chrome, brass and antique brass), wooden legs, stackable legs or with a swivel base.
The seat shell is made of sturdy polypropylene and comes in various beautiful colors and materials. For example, the chair can also be covered with all kinds of fabrics and leathers from different manufacturers (including Gubi himself). If you choose to upholster the chair, the chair will also receive a so-called piping / piping of the same fabric or contrasting fabric or a piping of leather (cognac or black leather) around the entire shell.
Now also available in an outdoor version, the Beetle Dining Chair has an authentic look that adds warmth to an outdoor setting, garden, terrace or balcony. With an eye for details, GamFratesi has found the perfect shape with every line and curve designed to give the perfect balance to the chair.
The chair is 87 centimeters high, 56 centimeters wide and 58 centimeters deep. The seat height is 43.5 centimeters.
