Gubi ronde - large


The word Ronde has several meanings. In some cultures it simply means round, in others it is a dance in which the participants move in circles and yet others, and most likely in this case, it is a flat disc which can be spun around a mould to make hollow vessels. The Ronde is Oliver Schick’s first product for Gubi and it is a good one. He most probably named it after the single blank of aluminium that was skillfully shaped by hand to produce it. However I prefer the idea of a dancer, spinning in a heavy skirt, the skirt filling out as she turns. Whatever the source of Oliver’s inspiration there is no doubt that the result is very pleasing, with bell antecedents the top of the light is open so that light is not only cast down but softly up 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 and it comes in two sizes and five colours, matt white, rusty red, pigeon grey, anthracite and charcoal black, all lights in all colours have a white interior.
