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.
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.
