Beetle plastic chair, tube legs
GamFratesi, 2017

Beetle plastic chair, tube legs

The Beetle Chair, a great commercial success for the Gubi brand designed by the GamFratesi duo in 2013, was initially designed in an upholstered version, before being declined in its plastic version in 2017. 

This stripped-down version makes the Beetle chair extremely robust, affordable, lightweight, versatile and easy to live with. Available in a range of colours, it can be used in kitchens, dining rooms and meeting rooms, in a single version or in a mix of colours.

The polypropylene shell is slightly elastic. Its shape, inspired by the shell of a beetle, provides the remarkable comfort that has made the range so successful. 

While retaining the simplicity of the plastic shell, the chair can be fitted with a fixed seat cushion for added comfort. This cushion can be chosen from a very wide range of coverings, including numerous fabrics and leathers.

Don't hesitate to contact us to find out more about these different options and to benefit from our in-depth expertise in all Gubi coverings.

GamFratesi

GamFratesi

Stine Gam was born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1975. She is educated architect with a master in furniture design. Enrico Fratesi was born in Pesaro, Italy in 1978. He has studied architecture and graduated with a master in industrial design. Gam and Fratesi gained experience as architects in several architecture studio in Japan and Scandinavia before establishing their own design studio in 2006.

The studio is based in Copenhagen, though Gam and Fratesi are continuously traveling between Italy and Denmark for development and research of new projects. 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, Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi 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.

GamFratesi aim to create furniture that illustrates the process and the techniques that created it, and which reflect a persistent exploration of the diverse border zone between harmony and disharmony. GamFratesi have received significant awards including Elle Decoration International design award (EDIDA) as International Young Designer of the Year 2013, Guest of Honor Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair 2014, selection Compasso D’oro / ADI , Nomination Best Designer Icon design award 2014, Vico Magistretti Award by De Padova, the Chicago Atheneum Museum of Architecture’s Good Design Award, Best Danish Designer 2012 by Bolig magasinet, ‘Walk the Plank award 2009’ and Best Danish Designer 2009 by RUM.
