The GUBI MR01 Initial Chair is an enduring and sustainable choice for the modern home. Expertly crafted from FSC-certified wood, showcasing traditional carpentry techniques such as finger joints, wedged mortise and tenon joints, not a single screw or nail has been used in the sleek structure. Finished with a striking hand-woven roped seat and back, beautifully mirroring the repeated lines of the identical wooden cross bars, the resulting geometric shadows cast creating playful optical illusions.
A stunning showpiece, ideally utilised in a living room or bedroom space, the low-slung, gentle design promotes a contemplative sense of calm, almost like you’re floating above the ground.
