Pieces of Nordic Happiness

Gubi | Floor lamps

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.

The best floor lamps of Nordic design

Floor lamps are true eye-catchers, not only because of their light but also their size and height. A long stand gives floor lamps a sculptural silhouette and sometimes even an impression of the light floating in the air. Floor lamps are ideal beside an armchair or sofa, in a lobby or bedroom, or any room that requires a brighter spotlight or soft atmospheric lighting to complement the ceiling light. Our range includes both classic floor lamps from the 1900s and contemporary pieces from Scandinavian quality brands, ranging from low and high floor lamps to torchiere lamps as well as tripod and arch floor lamps.

Floor lamps can provide many types of lighting: a diffused light, direct spotlight or bright general light. If you are looking for a floor lamp with pleasantly soft light, your choice can be, for example, a lamp with an opal glass shade or a Japanese-style paper lantern. If you need a good spotlight for reading or working, an industrial floor lamp with an adjustable shade and arm is an ideal choice. Sometimes a floor lamp even can replace the ceiling light, particularly if the bulb is bright enough to reflect light around from the ceiling and wall. Modern floor lights can also have many useful technical features, such as a dimmer, an integrated LED unit or a timer.

Finnish Design Shop’s selection includes a stylish range of floor lights both from masters of Nordic design, mid-century modernism and designers around the world. We stock floor lights designed by Alvar Aalto for Artek, Poul Henningsen’s and Arne Jacobsen's models by Louis Poulsen and wooden floor lights by the Finnish Secto Design. The colour range includes classic black and white, shiny brass and steel, bright colours and elegant marble. Choose your favourite floor lamp and update your home with a genuine, timeless Scandinavian design!
