As Oliver Schick’s debut design for Gubi, the Gubi Ronde Pendant is a classic yet bold shape, appearing as a water vessel that was tilted upside down. The spun aluminum shade is coated with a heavy matte finish while the interior is left white, projecting a strong down light from the center. Light floods from the open top as well, directed by the curve of the upper lip that adorns the bell shade. In 2001, Jacob and Sebastian Gubi took over their parent’s furniture business, transforming Gubi in to an internationally recognized design house for lighting, furniture and accessories. Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, Gubi is a purveyor of timeless and emerging designs, many of which are iconic and can be found in permanent collections around the world.
