Looking closely at the anatomy of the beetle insect, characterised by its solid outside and soft inside, the front upholstered Beetle Chair possesses all attributes. The front upholstered Beetle Chair holds the same soft core as the fully upholstered version, giving it an outstanding comfort while the contrasting outer in polypropylene plastic functions as a protective shell. The Beetle can exude a personal adornment with an upholstery of your choice. Due to its unique design, the front upholstery can also be changed with time to give the chair a different expression and new life to the interior decoration. GamFratesi has reinterpreted the characteristic elements of the beetles' sections when designing the Beetle Chair: shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside. The comfortable yet dynamic design makes the chair suitable for multiple environments whether it is in the home or the workplace.
