A super comfortable chair that offers timeless elegance with the beautiful velvet fabric. The Gubi Beetle Chair is a chair made in laminated moulded veneer with seat and back in 2 separate parts.
The 2 parts are joined together with a steel fitting milled into the 2 shells. The inspiration for the chair has been found in the insect world as GamFratesi has been looking closely at the anatomy and movement of the beetle.
GamFratesi Studio was founded in 2006 by Danish architect Stine Gam and Italian architect Enrico Fratesi. The studio is based in Copenhagen, though the duo are continuously traveling between Italy and Denmark for development and research of new projects for brands including Gubi and Hay. Gamfratesi won the Young Designer Talent of the Year at the Elle Decoration International Design Awards 2013.
