Designed by Komplot in 2003, the GUBI Chair was the first industrial product based on an innovative moulding technique using 3D-veneer. The GUBI Chair collection is a series of chairs and tables for restaurants, cafes, conference, lounge, office and home. It includes chairs and tables in three heights.
A new base for the Gubi Chair and Gubi Stool is now available - The Center Base. This new design for the chair frame really brings out the dimensions and unique look of the shell - it almost appear to be floating. So really this new extension brings out the true aesthetics and focuses the eye on the core of the design.
The frames for the Center Base version of the Gubi stool is made of Ø14 mm steel tube with feet support in solid rod Ø 8 mm. The chair has a black matte powder coated finish with glides accentuating the design in either matching black or brass finish.
The Gubi Chair – Center Base comes in 3D veneer or HiRek plastic material and all sorts of upholstery can be used as well.
The shell is available in laminated moulded 3D-veneer or in the injection moulded HiRek material. The thickness of the shell is 5 mm and it is available unupholstered, with front padding or fully upholstered in fabric or leather. The finishes of the 3D-veneer shells are beech, black stained beech, white pigmented maple, oak, American walnut or black soft coating.
The shell of the café chair and the stool is also available in the injection moulded HiRek material in black or white. The thickness of the shell is 5 mm and it is available unupholstered, with front padding or fully upholstered in fabric or leather. The stool is offered with a low or a high backrest in 3Dveneer or in HiRek.
