Founded in Copenhagen in 1967 by Gubi and Lisbeth Olsen, GUBI’s philosophy is to give overlooked icons of the past the recognition they deserve and to cultivate new generations of design talent. Fuelled by this passion, the result is an intercontinental portfolio of furniture and lighting that blurs the lines between the past and the future.
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.
TS Table Collection
Yet another refined creation by design duo GamFratesi for GUBI, the TS collection of coffee and console tables and desks showcases a rich assortment of marble, travertine and glass surfaces.
A coveted addition to any home, each table contrasts its surfaces using lacquered legs with intricate detailing, embodying GamFratesi’s idea that their work is "balancing between the traditional and surprising."
Created with classic, durable materials paired with a modern, clean-lined aesthetic, GamFratesi has designed the TS collection with a sharp eye for detail and an uncomplicated approach. Founded in 2006 by architects Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi, the award-winning Copenhagen-based design house takes its creative drive from a fusion of tradition and renewal, drawing on both designers' experiences of Danish and Italian craft traditions.
