Danish/Italian Design duo GamFratesi’s new chair Beetle Chair is already a favourite! Danish design house Gubi has just put it into production.

Inspired from the anotomy of the insect world, the chair has a comfortable double curved upholstered seat with elegant contrasting piping details. The seat sits lightly on top of a tenuous set of metal legs with small feet.

GamFratesi Design Studio was established in 2006. Stine Gam (born 1975) and Enrico Fratesi (born 1978) belong to the latest generation of furniture architects. Stine is Danish, while Enrico is Italian and together they represent a new interpretation of the meeting between Danish and international design traditions.

GamFratesi’s design takes its creative drive from a fusion of tradition and renewal and in an experimental approach to their chosen materials and techniques. With their dual traditional background, they draw on the classic Danish furniture and craft tradition as well as the classic Italian intellectual and conceptual approach. Understanding a tradition and addressing it actively in the workshop makes it possible to expand on it. From this cross-cultural substrate they create furniture that respectfully reflects tradition while also featuring unique embedded stories, symbols and associations, often expressed in a minimalist idiom.
