The plastic editions of two of GUBI’s most popular dining chairs, the Beetle and the Bat, have been reimagined for outdoor use. Reexamining their materials, aesthetics and function has led to the addition of an outdoor treatment, opening up new possibilities and making the chairs perfect for both indoor and outdoor use.
The Beetle and Bat Dining Chairs’ elegant single-curved outer shells now benefit from the addition of UV additive to the polypropylene formula from which they are injection molded, which strengthen and protect against the exposure to UV radiation.
The new Outdoor Collection maintains the distinguishing elegant lines of the Beetle and Bat, now combined with the informality and lightness of the outdoors – where they can be closer to nature.
Both the Beetle and Bat Dining Chairs are iconic in their design. Their organic shapes and distinctive silhouettes offer universal appeal. An tightly curated palette of two colors – New Beige and Alabaster White – for the shells and matching bases across both chairs enables them to fit perfectly into a variety of public and private contexts. The finishes have always been a fundamental part of the chairs, so an extensive study was conducted to develop the matt-satin texture, which offers a soft tactility.
