Description

PD2 was literally rescued from the dustbin of history. First designed in 1955 by architect Barba Corsini as part of the remodeling of Barcelona's famed La Pedrera, the lamp's base is inspired by the building's vaulted ceilings while the cylindrical shape of the chimney finds expression in the perforated lampshade.

However, in 1991, La Pedrera was restored to its original Gaudí decor and Corsini's furnishings were thrown away, only to be rescued from the trash by noted gallerist Joaquim Ruiz Millet, who later worked with Corsini to revive his work. Now produced by Copenhagen's Gubi, the lamp is available in either black or white to attract a whole new generation of grateful devotees.

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.”
