The Beetle Counter Chair has since its introduction in 2013 being well received by end-consumers as well as interior architects. Due to its appealing design, outstanding comfort and unique customisation possibilities, the counter chair can be seen in many of the most renown restaurants around the world.
The fully upholstered counter chair carries strong references to the design duo GamFratesi's inspirational source; the insect world, more specific the world of beetles. Not just the name indicates their inspiration, but also the characteristic elements of the beetles’ sections have been interpreted - shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside. The height of the counter chair contributes to its light expression, which makes it blend into any interior naturally and with grace. The wide range of upholstery options and different bases make it possible to put your personal touch to the counter chair and create one of its kind.
