As its name suggests, the Violin Chair draws inspiration from the elegant form of a violin. Designed by established duo GamFratesi, this characterful piece promises to add a touch of grace to its surroundings.
The two steel stems connecting the frame with the backrest resemble the neck, whilst its curvaceous form resembles the body of a violin. With a solid wood back that arches around the body, the piece is as comfortable as it is stylish. Carefully crafted by Gubi, the piece effortlessly merges contrasting materials to create a beautiful dining chair. Click here to browse the entire Violin collection from Gubi.

A clean and wet towel should be used to wipe the surface of any product that is exposed to ordinary or corrosive liquid within 10 minutes. A piece of dry cloth should then be applied to absorb the residual moisture. Please try not to apply a detergent with a high concentration of alcohol or a bleaching effect to clean household products. If you have no alternative, you must wipe the detergent off immediately after cleaning to remove corrosive liquid residue.

How does Gubi manufacture the Gubi Violin Chair?
Gubi makes the Violin Chair using steel, CMHR foam, polyester wadding and fabric upholstery. There are two versions available, one with an FSC-certified wood backrest and another with full upholstery instead. The Violin comes with plastic glides from Gubi as standard, however, felt glides are available upon request.
Is the Violin Chair by Gubi suitable for commercial and public spaces?
Yes, the Violin Chair is CRIB 5 certified, CAL 117 certified and EN 16139 L2 certified. Not only this but COM (Customer's Own Material) is also available on a minimum order of fifty chairs. The COM quantities are as follows: 0.6m of plain fabric, 0.8m of velvet/small pattern and 1.1 sqm of leather.
What is the difference between the authentic Gubi Violin Chair and a replica Violin Chair?
Gubi is the official and only manufacturer of the original Violin Chair by Gamfratesi. The chair will carry the Gubi brand mark on the underside of the chair. Not only this, but the authentic Violin Chair's dimensions are as follows. The chair's height measures 76cm (29.9in), width 58cm (22.8in) and depth 55.5cm (21.9in). The Violins seat has a width of 49cm (19.3in), a seat depth of 54cm (21.3in), seat height of 45cm (17.7in) and a back-rest height of 35cm (13.8in).
Is the Gubi Violin Chair related to an Antique Violin Chair?
The Gubi Violin Chair has nothing to do with the classic antique violin chair. The Violin Chair's name has a different origin. Gamfratesi thought that its series of structural lines are like musical notes on a score.
