Exclusive to The Conran Shop, the Beetle Chair in Jabana navy fabric was designed by the Danish-Italian design duo GamFratesi for Gubi and was first presented at Milan’s annual Mindcraft exhibition in 2013.
Having sought inspiration from the beetle’s unassuming beauty and incredible functionality, GamFratesi modelled the chair on the eponymous insect. Not only does the Beetle Chair evoke the anatomy and striking characteristics of the beetle, but it also draws upon the functional beauty of its shell. Inspired by the beetle’s robust carapace, the seat and back of the Beetle Chair are perfectly tailored to the human form to create optimum comfort.
With this new evolution, the elegant chair is upholstered in a luxurious Jabana microfibre suede effect fabric in a navy hue, which enhances the comfort and functionality of the stylish design piece. Impeccably finished with a non-stackable base featuring sleek black powder-coated steel legs, the Beetle Chair would beautifully accent any dining area.
