Gubi was founded in 1967 by Gubi and Lisbeth Olsen in Denmark. They initially focused on producing Olsen’s furniture designs and selling textiles to the retail sector.
The term ‘Chasing forgotten icons’ has led Gubi to re-launch a collection of designs from the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. As well as icons, their uncanny ability to recognise original ideas and inspirations has also resulted in a unique collection of exciting new designs from designers such as GamFratesi and Komplot Design.
Some of the stand-out and most recognisable designs from Gubi –
The iconic Adnet mirror is a real stand out piece from Jacques Adnet. The mirror is made from hand-stitched Italian natural tanned full grain leather in black or tan and oozes quality.

Mategot Collection – Mathieu Matégot’s organic forms and lightness of touch create a sense of joy and the ground breaking and innovative techniques that he applied resulted in unique aesthetics and, above all, contemporary designs. Today, Matégot’s designs are equally fit for the purpose as when they were originally conceived, and his legendary designs are both timeless and classic. The Nagasaki chair is one of few three-legged chairs and is still Matégot’s best-known piece. Gubi’s collection of original Mategot design include Nagasaki Chair, Dedal Shelf, Nagasaki Table and Mategot Coatrack.
The Pedrera family of lights were designed by Barba Corsini, a leading functionalist architect, in association with his protegé, Joaquim Ruiz Millet. In 1955, Corsini, realised his contemporary vision through his renovation of the La Pedrera loft space (designed by Gaudi) and the furnishings he custom designed for it- the Pedrera PD2 Floor Light, Pedrera Coffee Table and the Pedrera ANA Pendant Light
