The creation of young design duo, Enrico Fratesi and Stine Gam, the grey velvet and brass Beetle Dining Chair is inspired by the shape, shell and structure of the eponymous insect.
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. 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 seat and back of the Beetle Chair are created using laminated moulded veneer. The chair is upholstered in a luxurious rich grey velvet, finished with grey velvet piping, while the non-stackable base with conical legs is crafted from brass.
