With its musical form and sculptural silhouette, the Grand Piano Sofa from 1984 takes both its name and inspiration from a grand piano.
The unique design language reflects the designer Gubi Olsen’s true interest in classical music as well as soft, feminine forms. The result is a sofa where form follows function aimed for socialisation. The timeless sofa features two armrests slightly set back, encouraging for eye contact and private conversations.
The Grand Piano Sofa adds an affable presence to enhance the domestic landscape, making it ideal for any type of decor.
Gubi Olsen (1947 - ) together with his wife, Lisbeth Olsen, founded GUBI A/S in 1967. From the outset, the company has been based upon product design and development. Over the years, the designer couple have created a large collection of upholstered furniture and a furniture fabric, called Holmens Klæde.
Gubi Olsen has always pushed the boundaries to explore new directions in design. Always with a global outlook he has created his own unique post-modernistic expression. The inspiration comes from the rich Danish tradition of craft and furniture production, mixed with historical and visual references such as, French cinema, Napoleon Bonaparte and a grand piano.
The Gubi Collection today counts a wide range of lounge and seating furniture, the Diva Daybed from 1982, the Grand Piano from 1986 and the Bonaparte series and Inuit, both from 1990.
