Description

Here’s a piece of furniture so ahead of the curve it can take 10 years off its age. Dubbed “62” but actually designed in 1952 by Greta M. Grossman, it has a light presence owing to its somewhat quirky asymmetric line and slender metal legs that balance on small feet. Crafted in American walnut with a black gloss finish on the tabletop and door of the left-positioned cabinet, revealing a pair of shallow drawers and deeper one for files.

Brand

Gubi

Now led creatively by the couple’s son Jacob Gubi Olsen, Danish brand Gubi was originally founded in 1967 as a vehicle for the modernist furniture designs and textile catalog of husband-and-wife Gubi and Lisbeth Larson. Under Jacob’s watch, the company added a global focus to its roots in Copenhagen with a cosmopolitan array of furniture, lighting and interior objects. Alongside standouts from the 20th century, he has introduced a new generation of designers from companies such as 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” 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.”
