Carefully considered design objects are at the core of GUBI. To maintain and develop its position as a leading manufacturer of these curated signature pieces, Jacob Gubi Olsen will be taking on the role of Creative Director, retaining his shareholding and taking up the board position as Deputy Chairman. His proven ability and great passion for unfolding new design collaborations or discovering forgotten archives has proven to be a recipe for success. 

 

“I have long wanted to give my full attention to design and product development and I can’t wait to get stuck in,” he says.

 

In order for him to focus on GUBI’s design evolution, Kenni Riise is taking over as Chief Executive Officer and assuming full operational responsibility for developing the business and driving future growth. Kenni Riise has been with GUBI since 2016 and has been increasingly involved in all aspects of the business with great success, so this organisational change is merely a formal extension of a process that has already been ongoing for some years.

We look forward to bringing you even more great design from GUBI.
