GUBI | Dining chairs | GamFratesi

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.

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.

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.

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, Joe Colombo, Paavo Tynell, Pierre Paulin, Marcel Gascoin, OEO Studio, Bill Curry, Mathias Rasmussen, Tove Kindt-Larsen, Joaquim Ruiz Millet, Mads Caprani, Gabriella Crespi , Rainer Daumiller

Dining chairs from Scandinavia and beyond

Dining chairs are among the most important chairs in your house. Dining room chairs invite the family to gather together during breakfasts, dinners and suppers, and in most homes, dining chairs are in active use also outside the meals. The design of a dining table chair requires exceptional durability, comfortability and adaptability, and that's a good reason to invest in high-quality, timeless design. Well-designed dining chairs provide a straight yet comfortable seating posture, and their dimensions have been designed to fit people of various ages and sizes. In public spaces, for example in restaurant use, stackability of the chair is a definite plus – a pile of stacked chairs is easy to store in a small space.

The best dining chairs are a balanced combination of functional qualities and intriguing aesthetics – they have been designed to stand the test of time, both with their structure and appearance. The most common materials of Scandinavian dining chairs include wood, metal, plastic, rattan and different combinations of these. The seat might be upholstered in fabric, leather or velvet, or woven from linen webbing. Colourful dining chairs are a great way to spice up the decor of the dining area or neutral-toned dining table, and, respectively, strong colours of the interior can be balanced with black, white or grey dining chairs. Feel free to use your imagination – you can mix together chairs in different tones, or why not even several types of chairs.

Finnish Design Shop has curated a large selection of Scandinavian dining chairs ranging from iconic chairs from the previous century to the best pieces of contemporary design. Finnish cornerstones of our chair collection include the chairs designed by Alvar Aalto for Artek, as well as Ilmari Tapiovaara's iconic chairs. More recent pieces of Scandinavian design include the Hee chairs and About A Chair collection by Hay and the Visu chairs by Muuto.
