BEETLE CHAIR wood base
Available May 2017.
Continuing the success of the Beetle Collection, GUBI is adding a wood base to the Beetle Chair in oak, smoked oak finish and black stained beech.
The possibilities with Beetle Chair does not end with the wide range of shell options. Adding a wooden base in oak, smoked oak finish and black stained beech gives the Beetle Chair an authentic look that adds warmth to any interior. With an eye for details, GamFratesi has found the perfect shape where every line and curve have been designed to give the perfect balance to the chair. The new base enables the Beetle Chair to be featured in new, elegant settings where wood will work as the preferred material. Introducing a base in wood adds a significant value to all versions of the Beetle Chair whether it is in plastic or fully upholstered.
The design partnership, GamFratesi embodies the meeting between Italian and Danish design. The contrasts are often key to their inspiration. They work strictly within the Scandinavian approach to craft, simplicity and functionalism but there is always a strong emotional pull towards concept and the story behind each piece.
The inspiration of the Beetle Collection was found in the insect world as GamFratesi has been looking closely at the anatomy, aesthetics and movement of a beetle. The design of the collection reinterprets the characteristic elements of the beetles’ sections: shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside. The result is a collection that cunningly interprets the shell of this four-legged creature. The comfortable yet dynamic design makes this collection suitable for multiple environments whether it is in the home or the workplace.
