Bat Dining Chair took its inspiration from nature – its distinctive silhouette reflects the webbed wings of a bat.
The bat dining chair, designed by danish-italian design-duo gamfratesi, carries strong references to the interesting characteristics of bats, with its inviting, distinctive shell reminiscent of the shape of a bat’s wingspan. This harmony characterizes the form in a very particular way, meaning that the chair’s organic shape and gentle curves embrace the user in generous comfort rivalled only by the beetle dining chair.
The rounded shells of the chair embrace the sitter, making normal, active and passive postures comfortable even over long periods.
Elegant lines of lightness
Both the Beetle and Bat Dining Chairs are iconic in their design. Their organic shapes and distinctive silhouettes offer universal appeal.
“Balancing between the traditional and surprising, the Bat Dining Chair is created with a Scandinavian approach to crafts, simplicity and functionalism while also carrying a strong embedded story and associations expressed in a minimalist idiom.”
GamFratesi Studio was established in 2006 by the Danish architect Stine Gam (born 1975) and the Italian architect Enrico Fratesi (born 1978). GamFratesi belongs to the latest generation of furniture architects 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.
