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.
Designed by GamFratesi for Gubi, the Beetle Chair embodies the meeting between Italian and Danish design.The inspiration for the Beetle Chair was originally found in the insect world where GamFratesi had been looking closely at the anatomy and movement of the beetle: “The design of the chair reinterprets the characteristic elements of the beetles’ sections: shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside”.
