Gubi Rug: Round
A round version of Gubi's statement solid rug extends the Copenhagen boutique brand's collection of hand-woven offerings crafted by India's skilled artisans. Refreshed with vivid color, it displays an updated sensibility as well as a luxurious weave in a combination of New Zealand wool and viscose with a soft and silky hand. Also bringing strength and durability, the close weave ensures that the rug is easy to clean and that the pile remains straight even in heavily trafficked areas.

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.”
