The Ronde Pendant by Gubi is a unique pendant lamp with an opening at the top and an overhanging collar that is suggestive of a beautiful jar such as a vase or an amphora. The light is directed downwards, but also spreads out of the spout-like opening and casts a smooth light gradient over the wire and ceiling. The hand-turned aluminium lamp shade with an ultra-matt lacquer almost appears as if made of ceramic.
The Gubi Ronde Pendant was designed by Oliver Schick: "The bell-shaped piece has reference to the traditional pendant lamp and the heyday of 1970s lighting design; however, in a modern interpretation."
Colour: Black, white, pigeon grey, anthracite grey, rusty red.

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.
