French designer Marcel Gascoin (1907-1986) was one of the leading furniture designers of the post-war era. Gascoin prioritized simple functionality, executed with meticulous attention to detail.
GUBI reintroduces a GASCOIN dining collection, including 5 versions of the C-Chairs and 2 new tables: the B-Table and the S-Table. The pieces offer a coherent and responsive dining solution enabling the 2 tables to be mixed and matched with the C-chair editions and the Trèfle Stool.
Marcel Gascoin’s passion for wood and his dedication to craftsmanship shine through in every detail.
The S-Table, B-Table, C-Chair, and Trèfle Stool were all designed with a singular vision: they are crafted from wood, combining the precision of industrial knowledge and the dexterity of careful handwork.
The Gascoin dining collection eco-credentials include FSC-certified oak, formaldehyde-free glue and all-natural materials – plus all plastic has been removed from the packaging.
C-Chair, an iconic design
The C-Chair editions include a revival of the original version from 1947 with hand-woven paper cord, a new edition with veneer, two versions with upholstered seat and back rests, and a French cane edition
Marcel Gascoin reimagined the popular folding bridge table typology, upon which the eponymous card game is typically played.
The 1951 B-Table is reimagined as a contemporary classic, perfect for homework, working on a laptop and dining: the square table can be transformed into a rounded table, thanks to an ingenious turning mechanism and magnetic locks.
It’s the perfect table for the small space living of today’s city-dwellers
The S-Table made from solid and veneered oak or walnut is characterized by understated and timeless elegance that complement a range of interior styles.
Its innovative extending functionality and clean lines soon turned it into a household staple – the same characteristics that make it ideal for modern homes today.
The S-Table in the extendable version can be easily adapted to seat 6, 8, or 10 people depending on the occasion.
