The Croissant Sofa and Lounge Chair represent an elegant and playful take on the traditional typology of the Chesterfield sofa and club chair. GUBI has revived Illum Wikkelsø’s original 1962 design, embracing its sculptural and dramatic presence, coveted organic curves, and sublime craftsmanship.
The characteristic ‘croissant’ form – named for its playful reference to the iconic French breakfast pastry – makes a confident statement with a sense of humor in any interior space and works well as a standalone focal piece or in combination with other bold selections.
The curators at Gubi make dwelling in the past look good. Their team of "treasure hunters" is on a mission to re-launch iconic designs from the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, and today. That's over fifty years of eclectic, international, and groundbreaking mid-century modern design brought to the present.
