A stylish dining chair inspired by the anatomy of a beetle – with its vaulted hard shell, soft inside and neat legs.
Beetle Dining Chair, designed by GamFratesi for Gubi. The inspiration of the Beetle Chair was found in the insect world as GamFratesi has been looking closely at the anatomy, aesthetics and movement of a beetle. The design of the chair reinterprets the characteristic elements of the beetles’ sections: shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside. The seat consists of two separate inner shells of moulded veneer. It rests on a stable leg stand of steel or wood with different finishes. Beetle Chair is also available as un-upholstered, with an upholstered seat and front upholstery.
