A generously sized ottoman accompanies the Bohemian 72 sofa and lounge chair first created 50 years ago by Gabriella Crespi. As a footstool or an extra seat, the versatile piece features the same distinctive stacked-cane base topped with plush cushioning. Coalescing around the Milanese designer' penchant for natural materials, exquisite craft and Eastern influences, the indoor-outdoor range has been revived by Gubi from her original working drawings for a new era of casual luxury.
This collection can live outdoors, but only under a covered patio and protected from rain or wind.

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.”
