Gubi from David Village Lighting
Established more than forty years ago, vision, determination, and courage are essential ingredients in Gubi's success. The Gubi family has re-established a creative platform for the development of innovative functional design with global market appeal. The ability to create new concepts and the courage to swim against the tide has brought Gubi back to the forefront of the Danish design world. Since 1967, Gubi's core philosophy has been to create timeless designs, with aesthetics, innovation, functionality and quality as guiding principles. Our many new designs are developed partly in cooperation with designers who have previously left their mark on Gubi products and partly in association with a number of new designers who, in turn, will add new stories to the Gubi saga.

New In – Gubi Satellite Suspension
New in from Gubi is the Satellite Suspension designed by Mathieu Matégot. The suspension lamp comes in two sizes and is available in five shades; Black Midnight, Rainy Grey, Venetian Gold, Shy Cherry and White Cloud.
The colourful shades are made with pleated perforated sheets similar to a fabric mesh which is designed to let the light shine through the thousand of tiny holes.
Design icon, Matégot was the first to use perforated sheets in this way, making them work like fabric.
The Asian lantern style design, originally designed in 1953 features a large black lacquered steel cap, 5 meters of black textile cord and a rosette ceiling rose.
A popular piece since it was first designed the Satellite Suspension remains a timeless piece!

In March’s issue of Elle Decoration Editor Michelle Ogundehin discusses the idea of grey being the new neutral. Over the last few years neutrals have turned their connotations from boring dull shades to now express high end style. In the mist of that, grey is also now going against the ideas of being an old age, cold colour and is now one which is seen to easily fit into your interior giving you a step up from whites and neutrals.

Clerkenwell Design Week 2015!
We visited Clerkenwell Design Week 2015 in London to see some of our amazing manufacturers, to find out what’s new in their collections. We were mainly eager to see Zero Lighting, Secto Design, Prandina, Artemide and Gubi – All of which are very popular on our website!
The first brand we saw in the Design Factory was Zero Lighting, where we were introduced to new additions in their range.
Seen here is the new Silo Floor lamp, Pom Pendants, Elements table lamp, Fog and Stampa pendants. All available in a range of colours as well as custom colours.
Prandina’s stand made an impact with a huge cluster of Gong metallic pendants hanging around the company name, the new matching Gong table lamps were also on display. A new pendant has been released called Theodora and displayed in a set to show sizes and colour options available, the design is aimed at domestic spaces such as bedrooms because of its soft nature and diffused effect.
Secto Design made an appearance with the new oversized extendable wall lamp, which was designed to move around a space as the inhabitant changes it.
Artemide’s stand was un-missable with their new Glass Collection, a range of handcrafted glass pendants with impressive detailing on the body. Also new for 2015 is the La Petite table lamp, with it’s playful tilted design and sleek finish, were sure this lamp will prove popular.
Finally we made a trip to the Icon House of Culture where Gubi put on a stunning display, amongst lush interiors and inside a shabby yet grand venue they created a very trendy take on the vintage chic style.
Gubi put on display the new Collar pendant which has been highly anticipated, this is the first look at the fitting since Euroluce Milan.
At Clerkenwell Design Week we also saw some new brands whose collections were interesting and enjoyed looking around, such as Orsjo and Deadgood. Watch our website for new brands becoming available!
Thank you to everyone at the show who we met and made us feel welcome!

Gubi Ronde Pendant
The Ronde Pendant is designer Oliver Schick's first creation for Gubi. The bell-shaped piece is a modern interpretation of the traditional pendant lamp. Schick says that his aim is “to design products with character that are timeless and easy to comprehend." The Ronde’s unique detail is the overhanging collar around the top of the pendant, which is reminiscent of a vase or an amphora. The hand-turned aluminium lamp shade has an ultra-matt lacquer which makes it look as if it is made of ceramics. With its simple yet lively expression the Ronde pendant has all the potential to become a future design classic.
