Description

Details

The creation of young design duo, Enrico Fratesi and Stine Gam, the Beetle dining chair is inspired by the shape, shell and structure of the 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. All these elements are perfectly linked and work in a fascinating way.

The design of the chair reinterprets the characteristic elements of the beetles’ body: rigid on the outside and soft within, while maintaining comfort and functionality.

The seat and back of the Beetle chair are created using laminated moulded veneer. The chair is upholstered in a luxurious rich green velvet, finished with green velvet piping, while the non-stackable base with conical legs is crafted from brass.

GamFratesi

GamFratesi studio was founded in 2006 by Danish architect Stine Gam and Italian architect Enrico Fratesi. The studio is based in Copenhagen, though Gam and Fratesi are continuously travelling between Italy and Denmark for development and research of new projects. GamFratesi 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, the design team draw on 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.
