Designed by the creative partnership of Komplot Design, the GUBI Chair is the first furniture design to be based on the innovative technique of moulding three-dimensional veneer. The 3D design gives the chair a comfortable seat and sense of lightness as all edges are pointing away from the user. The simple and clean chair design offers an uncluttered look that with its possibility for fully upholstery in any fabric or leather, is perfectly suited for the private home or commercial space where individuality and unique pieces of furniture are sought for. The GUBI Chair has won several prestigious design awards and is included in the permanent exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.
Founded in 1987, Komplot Design, a partnership of the Danish architect Poul Christiansen (born 1947) and the Russian industrial and graphic designer Boris Berlin (born 1953), has designed furniture and created multidisciplinary design solutions for both Danish and international companies, including Le Klint and Lightyears.
Komplot Design’s multidisciplinary activities within product, furniture and graphic design, from tractor to office furniture systems and to brochures and corporate identity programmes, are not only giving the complexity of design approach, but also positioning their design into the electric field of intense exchange of experience and attitudes of different branches.
