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. 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. The wide range of upholstery options and different bases makes the Bat Dining Chair fit perfectly into a variety of public and private contexts.

Gubi was founded in 1967 by Jacob and Sebastian's parents, Gubi and Lisbeth Olsen. They initially focused on producing Olsen's furniture designs and selling textiles to the retail sector. Eager to make their own mark, the sons opened a concept store and introduced fashion into the equation. In fact, they were amongst the first to import Prada and Helmut Lang to Denmark, returning their focus back to the family business in 2001.
Since then, they have transposed the original creative vision into a contemporary context, putting Gubi on the map as a global player on the design scene. In an ever-changing international landscape, it takes an enormous amount of drive and determination to keep chasing icons. It's that type of endless energy, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit which has catapulted Gubi into an iconic status all its own.
