The Beetle Lounge Chair by Gubi is a fully upholstered chair available in a wide range of fabrics or leathers and made of laminated moulded veneer with seat and back. The Gubi Beetle Lounge was designed by GamFratesi: "Our work is balancing between the traditional and surprising. Often it takes just a small detail to achieve or break an expression, and we are very curious about that. We work strictly with the Scandinavian approach to crafts, simplicity and functionalism, but there always happens to be a strong emotion to concept and story behind each work."

The inspiration of the Beetle Chair Collection has been found in the insect world as GamFratesi has 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”. The result is a chair that cunningly interprets the shell of this four-legged creature. The comfortable yet dynamic design makes this chair suitable for multiple environments whether it is in the home or the workplace.
"Design is deep in our DNA" - 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.
