New and exclusively available at The Conran Shop until June 2017, this un-upholstered edition of the Beetle Dining chair by young design duo Enrico Fratesi and Stine Gam is an update of the contemporary icon.
Inspired by the structure of the eponymous insect, GamFratesi noted how the body is made up of different plates separated by thin sutures, and it is this external shell that supports and protects the animal.
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 Beetle chair are created using one piece of curved blue grey-hued plastic in an ergonomic shape ensuring comfort when sitting, while the sleek legs that make up the base are crafted from black powder-coated steel.
A contemporary icon, this new un-upholstered edition of GamFratesi’s Beetle dining chair offers Scandinavian simplicity and comfort in a subtle, clean-lined form.
Also available in an upholstered edition, with either black powder-coated steel or polished brass legs.
