  1. Is it true that the Gubi make the MR01 without a single screw or nail, if so, how do they make this?
  2. By employing traditional carpentry techniques Gubi does indeed make the MR01 Chair without a single screw or nail. The MR01 Chair uses wedge tenon joints on its frame. The structure features an ingenious construction. Not only does it minimise waste but it also adds a unique feature. A rare attribute amongst other modern designer chairs.
  3. Why did Mathias Steen Rasmussen design the MR01 Chair to use hand-woven rope as a seat and backrest?
  4. Rasmussen aims to distinguish his MR01 Chair from other traditional Danish chairs with 90 meters of hand-woven rope. By locking the linen rope into the timber frame he has created something truly original. The beauty of the rope support is not only in its comfort but its transparency and minimal visual impact too.
  5. What are the complete dimensions of the MR01 Chair?
  6. The total width of the MR01 Chair is 65cm (25.59in), the depth measures 88cm (34.65in) and the height is 69cm (27.16in). The seat is a generous 60cm (23.62in) in width. This relaxed modern lounge chair has a very low seat height of 33cm (12.99in). For a lounge chair, the MR01 is very light at just 10kg (22.04lbs).
  7. Does Gubi manufacture the MR01 Chair sustainably?
  8. Yes, Gubi makes the frame of the MR01 using either FSC-certified oak or walnut. Not only this, but they also use linen to hand weave the chairs rope backrest and seat. The method of producing linen from the flax plant uses far less water than it does to produce the same amount of cotton. This makes it a more sustainable choice.
  9. Does the MR01 Chair from Gubi come with a cushion?
  10. Yes, as standard the MR01 comes with a lumbar cushion included for extra comfort. The cushion has a full feather filling allowing you to really sink into this modern design masterpiece.

        Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.  Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.

        Thank you Jonathan and all at Olson and Baker.

        Great range of products.

        Purchased a beautiful rug from here and had a smooth overall buying experience.

        Beautiful item arrived earlier than indicated.

        Customer service informed me of this & then followed up after delivery to make sure it arrived safely.

        Highly recommend!

        Really excellent customer service. Can not recommend this company highly enough - the products are high quality and their communication with the customer is first class. Jonathon always responded promptly to any queries and was very helpful.

        I would definitely buy from them again.

        Beautiful and high quality furniture!

        Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.

        Bought some lovely wine glasses as a gift, quick delivery, great customer service and high quality product.

        Would definitely buy from Olson and Baker again.

        Excellent communication and speedy delivery...

        Couldn't have been better and will certainly buy from the company again.

        Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....

        take note Heal’s as you’ve not got a clue how to service customers

        First class service.

        The Olson Baker team continue to deliver outstanding advice and product knowledge.

        It has been an absolute pleasure buying a lovely piece of furniture from Olsen + Baker. Russell has been a delight to deal with, keeping me informed at every step of the delivery, even down to which colour would fit with my decor - nothing was too much.

        I can’t recommend highly enough.

        Fantastic customer service throughout the ordering process.

        Great products - really pleased with my order.

        So glad I came across Olson & Baker for my home accessories that I would not find elsewhere on the High Street.

        Fantastic service, Jonathan was extremely helpful through my purchase.

        Definitely recommend and would use again.

        Thanks! Angela

        Olson + Bakers service and products have been outstanding. I can't recommend Jonathan at Olson + Baker enough.

        He is an absolute star and has gone out of his way to provide superb service.

        Lovely website, great communication, fast delivery and they came in at a price other shops couldn't compete with on the chair I was after.

        Easily recommended.

        Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.

        We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.

        We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.
