The Bo Bedre Design Prize 2003
to Komplot Design for the chair Gubi
GUBI chair range is designed for being used
in a variety of situations from meeting rooms to conference rooms
and from canteens and cafés to restaurants, and includes chairs
and armchairs with tubular and solid rod frames, with stackable versions
chair is the very first industrial product based on the innovative veneer
moulding technique using 3-D veneer a process invented in Germany
by Dr.-Ing. Achim Möller and
developed by company Reholz GmbH.
Closely following the development of this technique during the last years,
after several experiments KOMPLOT Design could realise the shell, which
3-dimensionallity provides with friendly and comfortable shape and gives
a unique possibility of reduction of the thickness down to 5 mm (normally
9-10 mm). In other words a reduction of consumption of natural
resources (wood) to the half by adding know-how and human resources.
With all edges turned away from the human body the softly, organically
shaped shell creates a characteristic "body" of a chair, that
with its friendliness, like a beloved pet, comforts you, invites you to
touch, to caress it . . . . .
