The creation of young design duo, Enrico Fratesi and Stine Gam, the Beetle ottoman is inspired by the shape, shell and structure of the eponymous insect and makes the perfect accompaniment to the Beetle Lounge Chair. GamFratesi found the anatomy of the beetle very interesting; the structure is made up of different plates separated by thin sutures, and it is this external shell that supports and protects the animal's body. All these elements are perfectly linked and work in a fascinating way. The design of the ottoman reinterprets the characteristic elements of the beetles' body: rigid on the outside and soft within, while maintaining comfort and functionality. The footrest of the Beetle ottoman is created using laminated moulded veneer. The ottoman is upholstered in a luxurious rich navy velvet, finished with navy velvet piping, while the base is comprised of conical legs, crafted from brass.
