Balancing the historic and the contemporary, the Doric Coffee Table is solid and monumental, but it also has a delicacy to it, a lightness of presence and a sculptural quality that enriches its aesthetic expression while enhancing its versatility as a piece of furniture.
BEETLE IN 3D VENEER
In 2013, GUBI and GamFratesi introduced the Beetle Chair to the world, and a modern classic was born. Now, a decade later, the studio has reimagined their landmark design concept in 3D veneer – giving the Beetle a bold new natural expression and further emphasizing its status as an archetypal design, open to interpretation in any number of materials.
At first glance, anyone familiar with the work of Joe Colombo would be surprised by the Basket Collection.
