Gubi Ronde Pendant Large

The Ronde is Oliver Schick’s first product for Gubi and it is a good one. Named after the single ronde of aluminium that was skillfully shaped by hand to produce it the result is very pleasing. With bell antecedents the top of the light is open so that light is not only cast down but also up softly illuminating the cable and the ceiling. The surface of the light is painted in an ultra matt which gives it an almost baked clay like appearance despite being very light and it comes in two sizes and five colours all with a white interior.

Dimensions: Large - diameter 40cm H 24cm.

Appearance: Upturned matt painted vessel in various colours.
Design: 2013. By Oliver Schick for Gubi.
Material: Spun aluminium. Powder coated interior. Matt lacquer exterior.
Cable: 5m black cable and rose except on matt white where they are white.
Size: (Ronde large) Dia 40cm. H 24cm. 
Bulb: 1 x E27 max 70w or 1 x suitable E27 LED. Not included.
Weight: 1.272kg.

Oliver Schick was born in 1969 in Darmstadt and studied product design at the Hochschule der Bildenden Künste University of Fine Arts and Design in Saarbruecken. After graduating, he worked freelance for several studios and in 2005 he founded his own design studio with a focus on furniture, lighting and interior design and has since worked for companies such as Ligne Roset, Skandiform and Gubi. "My aim is to design products with character that are timeless and easy to comprehend. Often, only minor changes or unexpected details are needed to give a product a lively character which sparks the associations and emotions of the user." His Ronde Pendant for Gubi clearly echoes this philosophy, with its understated yet effectual details and sense of history despite being a new object. Schick also engages with a range of more experimental projects with design-related themes, focusing on materials, functions, usage and sustainable development.

Gubi was founded in 1967 by Gubi and Lisbeth Olsen. They initially focused on producing Olsen's furniture designs and selling textiles to the retail sector but changed direction in 2001 after they were joined by their sons who had returned after some years working in the fashion industry. Since then Gubi have transposed the original creative vision into a contemporary context, placing themselves on the map as a global player on the design scene. They see themselves as treasure hunters, where curiosity, courage and intuition are key components for success. It involves travelling, searching and finding long forgotten remnants from the past as well as contemporary, cutting-edge designs from new artists on the horizon. In an ever-changing international landscape, it takes an enormous amount of drive and determination to keep chasing icons. It's that type of endless energy, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit which has catapulted Gubi into an iconic status all its own.
