Beetle Sofa

$4,999.00

Taking its inspiration from the Beetle Lounge Chair, the elongated Beetle Sofa has a rounded, protective outer shell combined with a soft inside – just like a beetle. The 2-seater 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 design duo GamFratesi has been looking closely at the anatomy, aesthetics and movement of a beetle where the design reinterprets the characteristic elements of the beetles’ sections: shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside.

BEETLE COLLLECTION

 

For the Beetle Collection, GamFratesi became captivated by the idea of translating the form of a beetle into a product for the home. The pair drew on the form and function of an archetypal beetle to create an iconic and ergonomic chair with a hard, yet supple, two-part outer shell with comfortable inner surface.

 

 

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES

 

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. The distinctive silhouette enables the Beetle to carry bold colors with tactile expressions, or upholsteries can be color matched to the base for a more understated finish.

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.
