The legendary Gio Ponti practically defined Italian design in the 20th century and his rectangular mirror F.A. 33 hints at his timeless appeal. Originally designed in 1933 for the influential glass company FontanaArte which he founded along with Pietro Chiesa, it's signature Ponti with its lightly curved proportions and distinctive shape. In 2 different sizes, full length and half length, the mirror can be used in a dressing area or as a striking decorative design element almost anywhere.

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.”
