Concept

Masculo Lounge Chair
The Masculo lounge chair was first designed in 2008 by the design duo GamFratesi. The Masculo swivel lounge chair is an extension launched in 2014.

The lounge chair characterise by the contradiction between Scandinavian elegance and Italian dynamic lines. A strong shape with new Nordic aesthetic expressed by the synthesis between form, material and function. An expressive lounge chair given by the strong characteristic back- and armrest, resting on a light metal structure. The back is aggressive and masculine, and at the same time soft and embracing, with a unique and sophisticated detailing and combination of materials.

The Masculo lounge chair is available with sledge base or swivel base. The swivel base has four legs and are able to turn 360 degrees around centre.

MATERIAL
The rod structure is made from steel, powder coated in black or in black chrome. The seat and back come upholstered in fabrics or in leather.

COLOUR
Black or chrome base. The upholstered seat and back are available in a wide range of fabrics and leather.


Masculo Chair
Following the 2009 launch of the Masculo lounge chair, Jacob Gubi and GamFratesi came up with the idea of producing a modern chair with armrest that would provide the natural comfort inherent in the lounge chair. The quality, aesthetics and sitting comfort, which are so successfully combined in the Masculo lounge, are now echoed in the Masculo chair.

“The extremely comfortable Masculo chair features armrests and has the potential to become a modern classic, whilst also being a strong addition to our Gubi Chair collection,” says Jacob Gubi, CEO of Gubi A/S.

The Masculo chair design is marked by contrast. The distinctive, expressive backrest expresses an almost aggressive masculinity, whilst the slender supporting metal frame simultaneously embraces sophisticated, quasi-feminine detailing.

Masculo chair comes with sledge base and swivel base. The swivel base have four legs and are able to turn 360 degrees around the centre.

MATERIAL
The frame is made of powder coated steel. The seat and back come upholstered in fabrics or in leather.

COLOUR
Black or chrome base. The upholstered seat and back are available in a wide range of fabrics and leather.
