An unaffected elegance marks the beautifully crafted wood version of the 3D Lounge Chair from designers Boris Berlin and Poul Christiansen. With base and matching molded seat in natural oak, American walnut or black-stained birch, their revamp of the shell chair for Gubi is also a modern marvel in ultra-thin veneer that expresses both absolute comfort and a sense of lightness. Set lower and with wider proportions, the lounge is a variation on the original 3D, recognized by New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) for its astute design.

“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.”
