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.
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.
