Classic Danish brand GUBI was founded in 1967. At first, the small niche company focused on design, product development and selling textiles to the retail business. Four decades later, the company is significantly larger and it’s scope broader. First came the development of Gubi Olsen’s own furniture designs . They then developed their offering by collaborating with external designers, such as Boris Berlin and Poul Christiansen, partners in Komplot Design.
Finally, showing they never take their eye off a target, having first spotted a Bestlite lamp in 1989, Gubi were able to take the initiative five years later to obtain worldwide production and marketing rights to the Bestlite collection. The Bestlite lamp design, which is highly influenced by the Bauhaus period, has been in continuous production since 1930. Loved by architects, designers and design aficionados for the past 80 years, Bestlite today enjoys global iconic status.
