Designer: Enrico Fratesi and Stine Gam


Director: Nahnatchka Khan

This Beetle chair by Gubi is also known as the Gubi chair and has become a new icon.

An update of the original, this black-legged, un-upholstered edition of the Beetle Dining Chair by young design duo Enrico Fratesi and Stine Gam would enhance any interior.

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.

Available in blue grey, pink, green, new beige, sweet pink and white finishes, the seat and back of the new and exclusive Beetle Dining Chair are created using one piece of curved plastic. Ergonomically designed to ensure comfort when sitting, the sleek legs that make up the base are crafted from black powder-coated steel.

A contemporary icon, this un-upholstered edition of GamFratesi’s Beetle Dining Chair offers Scandinavian simplicity and comfort in a subtle, clean-lined form.
