The Beetle collection
The inspiration of the Beetle Collection was found in the insect world as GamFratesi has been looking closely at the anatomy, aesthetics and movement of a beetle. Selecting a beetle as source of inspiration is based on the design duo's fascination of how the external shell supports and protects the creature's body, and its gentle and charming look. The design of the collection reinterprets the characteristic elements of the beetles’ sections: shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside.
The result is a collection that cunningly interprets the shell of this four-legged creature. The comfortable yet dynamic design makes this collection suitable for multiple environments whether it is in the home or the workplace. The Beetle Collection consists of Beetle Dining Chair, Beetle Stool, Beetle Lounge Chair, Beetle Footstool, Beetle Sofa as well as a Beetle Table.
