Beetle Meeting Chair Fully Upholstered

11.999 kr.

The Beetle Chair from GamFratesi was an instant classic when it launched in 2013, and the many new configurations that have been added since have made it suitable to almost any space and type of usage. Reinterpreting the characteristic elements of the beetles’ sections - shape, shells, rigid outsides and soft insides – GamFratesi conceived of a chair that is at the same time striking, refined, and sublimely comfortable. Now, the addition of a pneumatic height-adjustment cylinder to the 4-star meeting chair’s base, with or without castors, makes it even more flexible, able to adapt to the diverse needs of the modern workplace, whether that be at home, an office, or somewhere in between.

GUBI presents height-adjustable editions of GamFratesi’s Beetle Chair.

 
 

INSPIRED BY NATURE

 

One of the most cherished chair designs in GUBI’s collection, the Beetle, have been given a functional makeover with the addition of adjustment mechanism that takes them to new heights of versatility.

 

Both of GamFratesi’s nature-inspired seating designs are celebrated for their chameleonic ability to suit any setting, with versions available for use everywhere from dining table to bar counter to boardroom. Now, the addition of a pneumatic height-adjustment cylinder to the chairs’ base makes them even more flexible, able to adapt to the diverse needs of the modern home office.

 

 

HIGHER POWER

 

The new mechanism allows the user to change the height of the chair by up to 11,5 cm /4,5 inches by making use of a lever under the seat. This allows the chair to be optimized both for different people in the household and to the nature of the task in hand. With desk-bound work often entailing up to eight hours of sitting a day, the combination of flexible movement and adjustable height allows for optimal posture and maximum comfort, minimizing lumbar stress and helping to improve focus.

 

NATURAL COMPANIONS

 

The Bat and Beetle Chairs are natural companions, sharing a design language and material identity, with ergonomics and comfort intrinsic to both seats. The Bat is beloved for the enveloping embrace offered by its fully formed, organically curving shell and armrest. The chair remains comfortable even when sitting for long periods – a benefit at the dining table, but an essential in the office.

 

The seats of the height-adjustable Beetle and Bat Chairs are set onto a black four-star swivel base in steel and aluminum – an elegant contrast to the five-star base common to commercial furniture. The base is available with either fixed gliders or castors, depending on whether the chair is to be used in one place, or wheeled around the home as required.

 

 

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES

 

Both Beetle and Bat are hugely variable in expression, with veneer and plastic material variants, and a wide range of upholstery options, fabrics, and colors available – from soft velvet to smooth leather – allowing them to blend easily into any interior.

On GUBI.com/Upholstery, you can explore all 270 suitable options from the GUBI Upholstery Collection.

 

GAMFRATESI

 

 

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.
