The un-upholstered Beetle Chair is a new edition for 2017 by young design duo, Enrico Fratesi and Stine Gam, who were inspired by the shape, shell and structure of the eponymous insect.
GamFratesi found the anatomy of the beetle very interesting; the structure is made up of different plates separated by thin sutures, and it is this external shell that supports and protects the animal’s body.
The design of the chair reinterprets these characteristics of the beetles’ body: rigid on the outside with smooth curves, while maintaining comfort and functionality.
The seat and back of the un-upholstered Beetle Chair are created using one piece of curved plastic in a selection of hues, with an ergonomic shape to ensure comfort when sitting, while the sleek legs that make up the base are crafted from polished brass-plated metal.
A contemporary icon, this new un-upholstered edition of GamFratesi’s Beetle Chair offers Scandinavian simplicity and comfort in a subtle, clean-lined form.
Available in a selection of coloured plastics or upholstery with smoked oak or black powder-coated legs.
