With its utilitarian-chic, black-steel framework and a trio of wood finishes, Gubi's 2D extends the innovative use of molded veneer. Via ground-breaking technology, the thickness of the veneer is half that normally used, for a sleeker and lither profile without sacrificing durability. Boris Berlin and Poul Christiansen of Copenhagen-based Komplot Design have evolved their take on stylish and long-comfortable seating in this unfussy and highly versatile option for both residential and contract interiors.

“I started out with two very strong designs, Bestlite—a Bauhaus collection designed in 1930—and Gubi Chair, designed in 2003” Jacob says (both available at A+R). “I felt they had something in common,” he continues. “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.”
