The GUBI Story
When brothers Jacob and Sebastian Gubi took over their parent’s furniture business in 2001, their voracious search and acquisition of iconic designs transformed GUBI in to the internationally recognized design house it is today. Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, GUBI is a purveyor of timeless and emerging lighting and furniture designs, many of which can be found in permanent collections around the world.Read More
GUBI has a wanderlust mentality when it comes to discovering new or forgotten designs. Self-proclaimed “treasure hunters”, GUBI prides themselves on exploring design aesthetics from within Scandinavia and around the world. The result is a collection of striking yet simple designs that follow the timeline of Modernism with historical and up-and-coming designers.
Why We Love GUBI Lighting
GUBI has a knack for discovering pieces (whether from the past or present) that are relevant for lighting modern interiors today. Many of the stories behind each collection have an inclination toward answering the needs of the modern home, with designs ranging from the 1930s to the 1970s that GUBI has helped relaunch.
Fun Facts About GUBI Lighting
Recently, GUBI was a part of a project that transformed the “The Standard”, a 1937 building in the center of Copenhagen, in to three restaurants and a jazz club. GUBI filled the space with their lighting designs and furniture—including the Cobra Wall Sconce—creating a vibrant center of modern design and culture to the city.
