First designed in 1965, the V11 Lounge Chair is one of the most revered and highly sought-after seating designs by the leading 20th-century Danish designer Illum Wikkelsø. Like GUBI’s other Wikkelsø design, the V11 is exemplary in craftsmanship and distinctive in form, with an angular trapezoidal body echoed in its signature inverted- pyramid legs in solid wood. Despite these seemingly sharp angles, the V11 is crafted for comfort, exemplifying Wikkelsø’s belief that chairs should accommodate a variety of seating positions. 

Painstakingly recreated by GUBI using a process of 3D scanning, the V11 family includes a lounge chair and accompanying ottoman, both FSC® certified (FSC®-C176589), and available with an extensive choice of upholstery options, demonstrating the design’s aesthetic versatility.

Danish furniture designer Kristian Illum Wikkelsø (1919– 1999) was one of the key protagonists to make Danish design style an international phenomenon.

Like many furniture designers of his generation, Wikkelsø trained as a cabinetmaker. He graduated with a distinction in 1940, before continuing his studies at the Copenhagen School of Arts & Crafts. Here, he was instructed by architect Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen, who later became both a business partner and an inspiration.

After graduating in 1943, Wikkelsø was admitted to the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ School of Furniture Design. Wikkelsø had already made a name for himself with his unique design aesthetic and artisanal sense of detail, and he was recognized for his efforts with a bronze medal for his graduation project.

He continued his work with architect and cabinetmaker Jacob Kjær and won four awards for his contributions to the Copenhagen Cabinetmaker’s Guild’s annual furniture exhibitions before he crossed paths with Mølgaard-Nielsen again and went to work for the architectural firm Hvidt & Mølgaard. He established his own eponymous design firm, based in Aarhus, Denmark, in 1954.

Over the decades that followed, Wikkelsø would make his mark with an array of furniture pieces such as sideboards and shelving in exotic woods, and, most notably, lounge furniture, sofas, and armchairs.

Gubi is a Copenhagen based design house renowned for designing, developing, and marketing a daring and elegant collection of furniture, lighting and interior objects that resonates across the globe. Its signature pieces evoke emotion and tell meaningful stories that make them both timeless and enduring. Gubi brings forgotten icons of the past together with tomorrow’s classics. The result is a visionary collection that spans almost 100 years of history and is sold all over the world.

Founded by his parents in 1967 – the year that the current owner and creative director, Jacob Gubi, was born – Gubi originally focused on producing the family’s own furniture designs and trading textiles within the retail sector. Over the years, Jacob Gubi’s creative vision and courageous intuition has led Gubi to its current position in the global design scene with a handpicked edit of high-quality furniture from all over the world and collaborations with both esteemed designers and archives and contemporary emerging talents.
