Beetle chair
fully upholstered, tube base

design GamFratesi, 2013

The Beetle Chair has since its introduction in 2013 being well received by end-consumers as well as interior architects. Due to its appealing design, outstanding comfort and unique customisation possibilities, the Beetle Chair can be seen in many of the most renown restaurants around the world.

The fully upholstered Beetle Chair carries strong references to the design duo GamFratesi's inspirational source; the insect world, more specific the world of beetles. Not just the name indicates their inspiration, but also the characteristic elements of the beetles’ sections have been interpreted - shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside. 

The wide range of upholstery options and different bases make it possible to put your personal touch to the chair and create one of its kind.

Dimensions W56 x D58 x H87 cm. Seat height 45.5 cm. Seat depth 42 cm.

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.
