Violin Chair - Fully Upholstered

Pre-Order Lead Time: 14 - 16 weeks
Designed by GamFratesi, 2019

The Violin Chair is pared back to the essence of what is needed to function, with character imbued into the smaller details such as the curve at each side of the backrest’s parallel struts.

In designing the Violin Chair, architects Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi set out to distil the archetypal form of a chair into its purest representation, without ever losing the sense of character for which they have become renowned. The result is a new typology for the GUBI Collection: an understated half-arm dining chair that epitomizes GamFratesi’s craftsmanship, creativity, and material understanding, with enough poetry to make the piece feel fresh, light and contemporary.

Available both as an edition with an upholstered seat and slender steam-bent oiled walnut or FSC-certified oiled oak backrest, and the more voluminous edition in which both the seat and backrest are upholstered, the Violin Chair has a clear silhouette and strong identity. It can hold a multitude of different expressions to suit spaces from informal canteens to fine dining rooms, while a broad range of leather and upholstery fabrics offer customization options to reflect every interior style.

Note from Establo: Another archetypal design from GamFratesi, the designed size and comfort have always been the right thing for Asians among all the European designs. The Danish-Italian design duo have been working with GUBI over the years and together they form the sense and position of GUBI with Beetle Chair, Bat Chair, Epic Table, TS Table, Sejour Lounge Chair, Masculo Chair, Gent Chair, Flaneur Sofa, IOI collections. Also, the Silhouette Sofa on display in our showroom.
