Bonaparte Lounge Chair by Gubi

Bonaparte Lounge Chair by Gubi

$8,318.00 CAD



Design Gubi Olsen, 1982

Always with a global outlook, Gubi Olsen, founder of GUBI, has created his own unique post-modernistic expression. The inspiration comes from the rich Danish traditions of craft and furniture production, mixed with historical and visual references, such as French cinema, Napoleon Bonaparte and a grand piano.

Postmodernism was a reaction to the functionality and formalism of Modernism and gave birth to the Postmodern architecture movement. Postmodernism in architecture is marked by non-orthogonal angles, the re-emergence of surface decoration and the expression of meaningful historical and stylistic references.

Gubi Olsen, founder of Gubi, has always pushed the boundaries to explore new directions in design. His starting point has been the rich Danish tradition of craft and furniture production, together with multiple historical references.

The Soft Collection, a range of furniture designed by Gubi Olsen from 1982 and upholstered in his own Holmens Klæde fabric is inspired by diverse references, such as French cinema, Napoleon Bonaparte and a grand piano.

The Bonaparte series comprises a sofa, lounge chair and a pouffe. The series has a wooden frame covered with polyurethane foam. The upholstery on the frame is fixed. The detachable and reversible seat cushion for the chair and sofa is made of polyurethane foam with springs. It is available in a wide range of fabrics.

Available with lacquered oak or black stained beech legs. Not available in leather.

Plastic glides included, felt glides available on request.
