The Beetle Stackable Chair offers a new element of functionality to the iconic Beetle Chair. Retaining the same elegant design based upon a Beetle, the piece has an altered frame allowing it to stack on top of itself for easy storage.

This additional functionality makes the piece appropriate for more commercial settings to seat larger quantities. Designed by renowned Italian-Danish design duo GamFratesi, the piece takes from aspects of Italian and Danish design heritage. As versatile and as comfortable as ever, Gubi produce a timeless classic that is already iconic in it’s own right.

  1. How to tell a real/authentic Beetle Chair by GamFratesi from a fake/replica Beetle Chair?
  2. There are a few ways to tell if a Beetle Chair is real or fake. One way is to look for a sticker glued on the base, a tag attached to the fabric, or a mark stamped on the leather. Another way to tell if a Beetle Chair is authentic is by looking at the craftsmanship. Gubi manufactures authentic Beetle Chairs with quality materials and attention to detail. The fabric or leather will be uniform, nicely tucked and smooth, and the stitching even.
  3. Is the Gubi Beetle Chair stackable?
  4. Yes, but only the versions with the stackable base. The stackable Beetle Chair has four metal legs, the rear legs raise up slightly at the top. Be careful not to confuse this with the conic base which has a slightly tapered leg with a different foot. The un-upholstered Beetle stackable chairs can stack up to eight chairs high. Whilst the upholstered Beetle stackable chairs can stack four chairs high.
  5. What are the dimensions of the genuine GamFratesi Chair with Conic Base?
  6. The Conic Base Gubi Beetle Chair has a height of 87cm (34.3in), a width of 56cm (22in) and a depth of 58cm (21.8in). The seat height on the original plastic shell Beetle Chair with conic base is 45.5cm (17.9in). Also, the seat depth is 42cm (16.5in), the seat width is 49cm (19.2in). The backrest is 43cm (16.9in) tall and is nicely supportive. The weight of the Beetle Chair is 6kg making it easy to move around.
  7. What is the plastic shell made of on the Beetle Chair?
  8. Gubi make the Beetle Chair shell with recyclable polypropylene. The Beetle Chair shell is therefore fully recyclable and does not produce any toxic or harmful by-products when reprocessed.
  9. Does the Beetle Chair come with foot glides?
  10. Gubi manufactures the original Beetle Chair with plastic foot glides as standard. Although, you can order your Beetle Chair with felt foot glides for a small fee. The felt glides for the Beetle Conic Base come in a set of four (item number: 10032700). The glides simply screw into the base of each leg.

        Beautiful and high quality furniture!

        Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.

        Lovely website, great communication, fast delivery and they came in at a price other shops couldn't compete with on the chair I was after.

        Easily recommended.

        Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....

        take note Heal’s as you’ve not got a clue how to service customers

        Beautiful item arrived earlier than indicated.

        Customer service informed me of this & then followed up after delivery to make sure it arrived safely.

        Highly recommend!

        Excellent communication and speedy delivery...

        Couldn't have been better and will certainly buy from the company again.

        First class service.

        The Olson Baker team continue to deliver outstanding advice and product knowledge.

        Olson + Bakers service and products have been outstanding. I can't recommend Jonathan at Olson + Baker enough.

        He is an absolute star and has gone out of his way to provide superb service.

        The service is superb and the website is so intuitive! 10 out of 10! :D Lee

        Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.

        We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.

        We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.

        Bought some lovely wine glasses as a gift, quick delivery, great customer service and high quality product.

        Would definitely buy from Olson and Baker again.

        It has been an absolute pleasure buying a lovely piece of furniture from Olsen + Baker. Russell has been a delight to deal with, keeping me informed at every step of the delivery, even down to which colour would fit with my decor - nothing was too much.

        I can’t recommend highly enough.

        Great range of products.

        Purchased a beautiful rug from here and had a smooth overall buying experience.

        Really excellent customer service. Can not recommend this company highly enough - the products are high quality and their communication with the customer is first class. Jonathon always responded promptly to any queries and was very helpful.

        I would definitely buy from them again.

        Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.  Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.

        Thank you Jonathan and all at Olson and Baker.

        Fantastic service, Jonathan was extremely helpful through my purchase.

        Definitely recommend and would use again.

        Thanks! Angela

        Very good service, great communication and arrived very promptly

        Thank you

        Fantastic customer service throughout the ordering process.

        Great products - really pleased with my order.

        So glad I came across Olson & Baker for my home accessories that I would not find elsewhere on the High Street.
