Description

From a young Danish designer and trained cabinetmaker comes a carefully crafted lounge chair fashioned without a single nail. Mathias Steen Rasmussen starts with a low-slung, gently inclining seat which extends into the back leg and provides support for the backrest. In solid American walnut or oak, MR01's wedged tenon joints go right through the frame and 4 out its 5 cross bars are identical, simplifying construction and reducing waste. Ninety meters of rope are then hand-woven for the seat, using a method Mathias developed himself, for a eloquent play of organic materials.

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.”
