The Conran Shop

The brand originally focused on producing the Olsens’ own furniture designs and trading textiles within the retail sector. After their sons opened a concept store and introduced fashion into the equation, Gubi began to evolve as a brand and forge its now instantly recognisable aesthetic of simple, arresting shapes creating using the world’s most innovative manufacturing techniques.

Once famous for traditionally crafting its furniture out of beautifully curved wood, Gubi is now renowned for being at the forefront of an innovative moulding technique using 3D-veneers. Over the years, Gubi has established a firm position on the Danish design market with its handpicked edit of high quality furniture from all over the world, and its collaborations with both esteemed designers and exciting up-and-comers.

Beetle Dining Chair Velvet With Black Legs

Beetle Dining Chair Velvet With Black Legs
Designed in 2013 and first presented at Milan’s annual Mindcraft exhibition, the Beetle Dining Chair is the creation of young design duo, Enrico Fratesi and Stine Gam, and is inspired by the shape, shell and structure of the eponymous insect. GamFratesi found the anatomy of the beetle captivating; the structure is composed of different plates separated by thin sutures, and it is this external shell that supports and protects the animal’s body. All of these elements are perfectly linked and work together in a way that fascinated the designers.
