Pieces of Nordic Happiness

Gubi | Chairs

Gubi Olsen and his wife Lisbeth Olsen founded Gubi in 1967. The company has been based since the beginning on product design and development. Over the years, the two designers have created a large collection of upholstered furniture and a furniture fabric, called Holmens Klæde.

The Gubi family has now re-established a creative platform for the development of innovative, functional design with global market appeal, which has brought Gubi back to the forefront of the Danish design world. With this new foundation firmly in place, strategy is now focused on the development of unique design icons.

Since 1967, Gubi’s core philosophy has been to create timeless designs, with aesthetics, innovation, functionality and quality as guiding principles. Gubi’s many new designs are developed partly in cooperation with designers who have previously left their mark on Gubi products and partly in association with a number of new designers who, in turn, will add new stories to the Gubi saga.

Currently, Gubi is concentrating on building a classic collection of design icons from 1930 to the present. The collection covers both a wide geographical area and timeline, but the focus is always on the same core values, so there is a consistent theme running through the entire collection. Gubi’s classics include designs by Barba Corsini, Greta Magnusson Grossman and Mathieu Matégot.

This brand has collaborated with: Robert Dudley Best, Greta Magnusson Grossman, Komplot Design, Mathieu Matégot, Barba Corsini, Bonderup & Thorup, GamFratesi , Jacques Adnet, Louis Weisdorf, Oliver Schick, Space Copenhagen, Gio Ponti, Paavo Tynell, Pierre Paulin, Carlo De Carli, Kerstin Hörlin-Holmquist, Marcel Gascoin, OEO Studio, Bill Curry

Chair design the Nordic way – pick the perfect chairs for your life and style

Oh, chairs! It's hard to get enough of them if you're a true design enthusiast. Besides its obvious functional use, a well-made designer chair provides you with so many enjoyable little details that we don't know where to start with. It's the combination of function, form and feeling that makes some chairs just truly special. You might sense it already when you see the chair, but when you sit on it, you just know it. No matter if it is a generous armchair, a practical dining chair, a sturdy bench, sleek bar chair or a simple stool, a high-quality designer chair instantly feels like a lifelong companion.

If you're looking for your new favourite chair, you've come to the right place! Our chair collection is filled with true gems of Scandinavian and Finnish furniture design, ranging from treasured mid-century classics by Charles & Ray Eames, Eero Aarnio and Alvar Aalto to awarded chair designs by contemporary Nordic designers, such as Hee Welling, Sami Kallio and Iskos-Berlin. In terms of materials, colours and chair types, there's an abundant selection to choose from. The most common materials of our chairs include wood and metal in a range of finishes, but you can also opt for a rattan chair, plastic chair, webbing chair, or an upholstered chair in fabric, leather or sheepskin. Our chair collection also includes office chairs, rocking chairs, bean bag chairs as well as poufs and ottomans.

While browsing through our chairs, you might also want to delve into inspirational stories about Nordic chair design.
