The natural grain of wood brings a tactile appeal to this version of Gubi's updated shell chair, 3D. Komplot designers Boris Berlin and Poul Christiansen offer a choice of 3 base finishes with molded wood seat to match or the seat in molded HiRek, a boldly colored, partially recycled plastic material. Looks aside, comfort reigns supreme with the seating's ergonomically shaped contours and thoughtful rounded edges.

Design is an unceasing continuum, believes this Danish house, now owned by a second generation. Owner and creative director Jacob Gubi Olsen inherited the helm from his parents Gubi and Lisbeth Larson, who founded the business to showcase their postmodern furniture. Under Jacob’s watch, Gubi added a global focus to its roots in Copenhagen, with a cosmopolitan array of furniture, lighting and interior objects.
Alongside 20th Century icons such as Robert Dudley Best and Greta Magnusson-Grossman, the design house has championed a new wave of design studios including GamFratesi, Space Copenhagen and OeO Studio. “I started out with two very strong designs, Bestlite—a Bauhaus collection designed in 1930—and Gubi Chair, designed in 2003. I felt they had something in common,” says Jacobs. “Iconic appearance, functional design, high quality, aesthetic design language and adaptable for many different kinds of interiors. I took these values as a guideline for any new designs added to the collection ever since.”
