First produced around 1950, the 9205 is a classic, almost archetypal, table lamp with an unmistakable Tynell aesthetic. Elegant and slender, the lamp’s apparently simple form conceals an extraordinary degree of craftsmanship and highly skilled hand-making. The canvas model's shade is constructed by attaching the fabric to a liner, which is then manually fixed onto a wire frame, while the bamboo is made from a series of slats first sewn together by hand to form a pleated mat before being connected to the liner and frame a contemporary update to the ryegrass cane used in Taito’s original model. The stem is milled with a rattan-like pattern, created by a metalsmith using a lathe with great precision and attention to detail to mimic the effect of a series of overlapping strips. A brass plate, screwed into the stem, keeps the shade in place.

Gubi was founded in 1967 by Jacob and Sebastian's parents, Gubi and Lisbeth Olsen. They initially focused on producing Olsen's furniture designs and selling textiles to the retail sector. Eager to make their own mark, the sons opened a concept store and introduced fashion into the equation. In fact, they were amongst the first to import Prada and Helmut Lang to Denmark, returning their focus back to the family business in 2001.
Since then, they have transposed the original creative vision into a contemporary context, putting Gubi on the map as a global player on the design scene. In an ever-changing international landscape, it takes an enormous amount of drive and determination to keep chasing icons. It's that type of endless energy, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit which has catapulted Gubi into an iconic status all its own.
