3D Bar + Counter Stool: Sledge Base + Plastic Shell
In next-level HiRek plastic, Gubi adds bar and counter stools to its sleekly molded 3D seating, in this version with a sturdy, weight-distributing sledge base. First deployed in a breakthrough wood veneer chair of remarkable slender thickness, the process has been now been adapted to an injection-molded synthetic in an extension of the original by Komplot Design. With its comfortable seat and a sense of lightness—with all edges pointing away from the user—it’s a sturdy and refined choice for both the home or a hospitality space.

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.”
