Gubi is a Danish design company dedicated to lighting and furniture. Gubi’s headquarters and showroom are located in Copenhagen. Gubi was founded by Lisbeth and Gubi Olsen in 1967. Since then, the company has been kept in the family. In 2001, Jacob Gubi took over managing Gubi.
For Gubi, a sense of responsibility is important. Many considerations are necessary before a product is created. Innovation is always a central goal among these considerations - Innovation regarding materials, ecological aspects, and design.
However, before an innovative concept can be realised, many steps must first take place at Gubi to decide if the ideas really have the potential to become a long-term concept. As brilliant as an idea may be, the efficiency of the technology behind it and the efficacy of the materials is of great importance to the company.
The several-time recognised Gubi Chair became the pioneer of the company’s own collection of furniture and lamps. Gubi has since worked on many projects and the design of numerous buildings.
