Gubi introduces a splendid round dining table that contrasts a veneer oak base in a black stained, lacquered finish and tabletop in luxe grey Emperador marble. Moon plays on story duo Space Copenhagen’s penchant for varied materials and textures, with the beveled treatment on the wood column and noble stone top with its one-of-a-kind patterning. Available in a choice of small and larger iterations, the table’s combination of organic elements and forward-thinking design truly sets the stage for a magical dining experience.

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.”
