Gubi Lights

Gubi was founded by Gubi and Lisbeth Olsen who began making furniture more than fifty years ago. Their aim to revolutionise the design world has led to the brand’s evolution and continued success.

Gubi creates timeless designs using inspiration from history while at the same time looking to the future. This concept is clear to see in the Gubi lighting range.

Jacob Olsen - the son of Gubi and Lisbeth Olsen and current CEO of the company - has a passion for historic designs and hunts for the reproduction rights to bring back these classic designs to the modern Gubi lighting UK market.

One such example is the Gubi Semi pendant light - a Danish classic from 1967, designed by Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup. The lamp still looks futuristic today with a extraordinarily beautiful shape which provides a practical spread of light across a room.

The versatile Gubi Multi-Lite pendant by Louis Weisdorf was first designed in 1972. Two movable cylindrical shapes are central elements, anchored with a metal ring. These rotating shades enable the light to be directed in multiple directions.

In 2001, Gubi lighting UK won the rights to the classic modern English lighting company Bestlite. The classic Gubi Bestlite table light was originally designed in 1930 by Robert Dudley Best, a British designer influenced by the Bauhaus.

The popularity of the Bestlite table light grew rapidly after it was referenced as the first evidence of Bauhaus design in Britain. Due to the lamp’s practicality with its flexible arm and movable shade, the light was first used by RAF engineers to work by.

When Winston Churchill personally chose the Bestlite lamp for his desk, the iconic status of this lamp was sealed. Gubi lighting continue producing this well-loved lamp to this day.
