Taking its inspiration from the Beetle Lounge Chair, the elongated Beetle Sofa plays with the contrast between the enveloping outer shell and a soft, inviting interior which encourage to be seated. The characteristic look is enhanced by the delicate, slightly conical legs, giving its light expression.

The Beetle Sofa can be customized in any one of a vast array of fabrics and materials, further echoing the versatility of its insect namesake.

INSPIRED BY NATURE
From beetle to Beetle: The flexible and yet robust shell enables micromovements inspired by the articulated shell of the insect.
“Its free, organic yet precise line is what makes the Beetle unique. Every time we see it reinterpreted in prestigious international projects, it is an unexpected honor. But then, we have spent almost a decade with it, and that line, flowing harmoniously through space, still manages to charm even us.”
GamFratesi has been working with GUBI since the inception of their studio and the development of the Beetle Chair. With their own dual heritage, Italian Enrico Fratesi and Danish Stine Gam share GUBI’s ability to synthesize seemingly opposing ideas – the classic and the contemporary, the intellectual and the sensual, the understated and the expressive, the manufactured and the unique. These juxtapositions, as well as the boldness and curiosity that drives their desire to find inspiration in unfamiliar territory, are epitomized in the Beetle.
