GUBI is an innovative design company manufacturing high-end furniture and lighting. GUBI was founded in 1967 and is now one of the leading design manufacturers in Denmark, and has had great success both nationally and internationally. The headquarters of the company is situated in the Copenhagen Free Port.
Product development and innovation are first priorities for GUBI, why this company works in close cooperation with well-known Danish and international architects and designers when developing our products. “To us it is important, that a new product is not just a part of a series along the product line, but each time a wish to make something different. We want to stay curious, to go new ways, experiment with new materials or shapes, but most of all make a design that has purpose, is functional and thereby fulfils our design philosophy”.
GUBI's key accesory and lighting products are: Bestlite lamps, Adnet mirrors, Mategot shelves and coat racks, Cobra and Grashoppa lamps by Great Grossman, Gubi also produces furniture: GUBI Chair Collection, designed by Komplot Design in 2003 and several height adjustable desk collec- tions; Go-Desk, designed by GUBI design team, the GOS collec- tion, designed by Paul André Leroy, GOS II and GOS III, designed by Anders Lundqvist, as well as our storage collection, GUBI Storage II.
In 2004 GUBI obtained the production and sales rights of the Bestlite lamp collection worldwide. Bestlite was designed in 1930 by Robert Dudley Best and hence this design classic has been in continuous production for about 85 years.
GUBI's list of references is vast and impressive, having delivered to large companies in the European financial sector as well as to the hotel- and restaurant industry. In 2004 the GUBI chair was included in the permanent collection at MoMA in New York. In 2005 GUBI furnished the 25th floor of the new 7 World Trade Center – as an example of the office of the future.
