Beetle Lounge Chair

Armchairs from GUBI, Designed by GamFratesi

Product description

H: 82 cm, W: 63 cm, D: 72 cm, Seat height: 36 cm


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 multiplex environments whether it is in the home or the workplace.

Beetle Chair / Beetle Bar Chair
The Beetle Collection by GamFratesi has bloomed into a series of unlimited possibilities. The Beetle Chair and Bar Chair will now not only be an upholstered chair but also available with a polypropylene plastic shell, giving it a lighter expression with notable durability at a lower price point. The chair’s subtle matte texture offers a soft tactility where its outstanding sitting comfort is obtained.

The seven harmonious colours of the unupholstered seating shell may also be combined with seat or front upholstery to add an additional comfort and exude a personal adornment. Due to its unique design, the seat or front upholstery can be changed with time to give the chair a different expression and new life to the interior decoration.

Thanks to the wide spectrum of colour options and the possibility for seat or front upholstery, the Beetle Chair and Bar Chair are ideal solutions for both formal and informal spaces alike.

Beetle Chair – casted swivel base
The casted swivel base in aluminium brings a corporate expression to the classic Beetle Chair and contributes to a new, elegant version for the traditional meeting chair. While the graceful seat ensures a high level of comfort for long meetings and conferences, the new swivel base embodies clean design with great functionality. The features are paired and makes the chair ideal where the classic meeting chair would not be appropriate for aesthetic or space filling reasons. Available in black, white and polished aluminium and a wide range of seating options, the Beetle Chair with casted swivel base encourages for personalisation for any type of business workplace or meeting room.

Beetle Chair – wood base
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.
