TIMBERLINE FLOOR LAMP
First created by the Danish lighting designer in the 1970s, the Timberline rapidly became Caprani’s flagship product – a playfully curving, swan-necked floor lamp that both captures the Scandinavian design language of the 1970s and also transcends it, becoming one of those rare pieces that can slip effortlessly into any space, of any style.
Carefully curated and intuitively iconic. That's been the spirit of GUBI since 1967. Rediscovering the heart of historical pieces and seeing how a contemporary vibe can help us write new chapters and find harmony in the eclectic.
INHABITING THE WORLD
In nature, beetles are found everywhere around the world – land and water, desert and mountain, forest and field. Like its namesake, the Beetle Chair is at home in the elements.

Aamann’s Genbo creates engagingly eclectic ambience with the Daumiller armchair

SHINE LIKE THE SEVENTIES
In the 1970s, we went crazy for color. Bold shades, earthy tones, playful accents, gleaming neutrals – the full spectrum from subtle to striking. Now, we are in the midst of a retro renaissance, as the tones and textures of the decade’s distinctive aesthetic are en vogue all over again.
