Founded in 1967 by Gubi and Lisbeth Olsen, Gubi is a leading Danish brand that seeks to bring classic light design and aesthetics to the modern world.
Producing designs by renowned 20th Century designers such as Greta M. Grossman, Louis Weisdorf and Paavo Tynell, Gubi lighting brings their forms to fruition as they reinvent and reinvigorate designs from the forgotten past, making classic lights and furniture staples available to the present-day home and workplace. Distributing iconic lamps and lights such as the Gräshoppa floor lamp, the Cobra table lamp and Turbo pendant light, Gubi are the go-to brand for finding lights that are completely timeless and everlasting.
