Industrial precision and intricate handwork
The C-Chair is crafted from robust and long-lasting wood, aesthetically refined with details of veneer, French cane or hand-woven paper cord.
Marcel Gascoin designed the C-Chair in 1947 as a response to the challenge with large families in small apartments in France after World War II.
Marcel Gascoin was one of the leading designers in postwar Europe. Innovative and with a strong social conscience, Gascoin’s democratic design connected art with industry, and functional aesthetics with rational manufacturing processes.
Even today, Gascoin’s furniture is praised for its simple lines, minimalist aesthetics and compact modular design that makes optimal use of space.
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.
