Description

Gubi’s Grace lounge chair is an exquisite rattan beauty whose soft lines reflect designer Tove Kindt-Larsen's penchant for natural shapes: the chair's design is inspired by the smooth pebbles and pieces of driftwood Kindt-Larsen liked to collect from the sandy shores of the north coast of Denmark. The Grace chair was originally designed by Kindt-Larsen as early as 1936 but did not end up in production until 2021 when the chair's sketches were found in Kindt-Larsen's archives.

The Grace lounge chair is made from Indonesian rattan, which is steamed and bent into shape by local artisans. Each chair is therefore a handsome example of skillful artisanship, with its unique character accentuated by the beautiful shade variation typical of the natural material. The chair also has a loose back cushion that you can position as is the most comfortable for you – or even taken off completely if that's what feels most ergonomic. The elegant yet relaxed and inviting Grace lounge chair makes for a refined addition to any space.

Tove Kindt-Larsen

Tove Kindt-Larsen (1906–1994) was a Danish architect and designer known as one of the first female designers in the golden age of Danish design. The most well-known pieces of furniture she designed include the Grace chair from 1936 and the Swing chair from the following year. The rattan chairs are a great example of both Kindt-Larsen's signature style, drawing from natural forms, as well as her pioneering work on rattan and plywood furniture.

Tove Kindt-Larsen studied architecture and furniture design at the Royal Danish Academy of Arts in Copenhagen. In 1937, she married Edvard Kindt-Larsen (1901–1982) – she is perhaps best known for her collaboration with her husband and the couple’s joint design office, founded in 1945. The best-known furniture by the Kindt-Larsens include the Kamin and Pagaj chairs from 1939 and 1960, respectively, and the Pagoda and Prisma sofas from 1956 and 1964, respectively.
