The 3-dimensionality of the shell provides a friendly and comfortable shape, while offering the unique possibility of reducing its thickness to a mere 5 mm (normally 9-10 mm). In other words – a reduction of consumption of natural resources (wood) in half, thanks to human ingenuity and inventiveness.
With all edges turned away from the human body, a soft, organically shaped shell is formed, creating the characteristic “body” of the chair that in its friendliness – like a beloved pet – comforts you, invites you to touch, to caress it…
The GUBI chair range is designed to be used in a variety of situations – from meeting rooms to conference rooms, from canteens and caffes to restaurants – and includes chairs, bar chairs and armchairs with tubular frames, solid rod frames and of molded plywood. A stackable version is also available
