C-Chair Dining Chair - Fully Upholstered

Designed by Gubi

Gubi was founded in 1967 by Jacob and Sebastian’s parents, Gubi and Lisbeth Olsen. They initially focused on producing Olsen’s furniture designs and selling textiles to the retail sector. Eager to make their own mark, the sons opened a concept store and introduced fashion into the equation. In fact, they were amongst the first to import Prada and Helmut Lang to Denmark, returning their focus back to the family business in 2001.

Since then, Gubi has transposed the original creative vision into a contemporary context, putting them on the map as a global player on the design scene. In an ever-changing international landscape, it takes an enormous amount of drive and determination to keep chasing icons. It’s that type of endless energy, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit which has catapulted Gubi into an iconic status all its own.

Chasing forgotten icons has led Gubi to the re-launch of designs from the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Originally created by artists, sculptors, designers and architects from France, Italy, England, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Hungary, Germany, Japan and elsewhere. Talented professionals whose work has been featured at MoMA in New York, Victoria & Albert Museum, London’s Design Museum, the National Museum in Stockholm and the Arktikum Museum in Finland, among others. Each piece is exquisite in its own right with a story to tell, capturing a fleeting moment in history which remains relevant to this day. A perfect example is Bestlite, a series of Bauhaus-influenced lamps first produced in 1930 by British designer Robert Dudley Best. (Winston Churchill is one of several highly esteemed owners.) We spotted a Bestlite lamp in 1989 and resurrected this beloved icon of last century as part of a stunning 13-piece collection re-launched worldwide.

Description

One of Marcel Gascoin’s most well-known pieces, the C-Chair Dining Chair, was designed in 1947. The chair represent not only the aesthetic and practical power of Gascoin’s designs, but also the social conscience he strongly demonstrated through the post-war years in France. The C-Chair was originally created out of necessity to fit in to the new sizes of homes build at the end of World War II, where Gascoin made up for the lack of space by creating simple, functional furniture. Cleverly designed with great attention to detail, the C-Chair posseses an elegant shape yet sturdy construction rooted in a simple, minimal and strong design language. Characterised by voluminous and vigorous legs juxtaposed by an inviting seat in lighter material like cane, straw or fabric, the quality of the C-Chair reveals itself through modern lines, sobriety and high-quality wooden workmanship.
