Combining the intricate craftsmanship of rattan basketry with the sumptuous comfort of voluptuous fabric upholstery, the Gubi Basket Lounge Chair adds a beautiful natural touch to your interior spaces. Joe Colombo’s original design incorporated a fibreglass shell, which has now been replaced by a solid steel skeleton, adding strength while also being kinder to the environment. This is covered with a hand-woven rattan skin, using interlaced strips and oval stakes to create the chair’s characteristic contours.
In his brief but brilliant career, Italian industrial designer Joe Colombo produced a series of innovative designs which made him one of Italy’s most influential Italian product designers of the 20th century.
Thanks to this energy and optimism Joe Colombo produced an extraordinarily broad body of work in his tragically short career. Colombo’s modern lighting and furniture products are produced under license by international brands like Oluce, Kartell, Bieffe, Alessi, Flexform and Karakter Copenhagen.
