Last 9th April Salone del Mobile Milano closed its doors after 56th edition. Five days of design and furniture as points of interest, where Mobles 114 actively participated.
The stand placed at Hall 10, designed by Stefano Colli, has been home to the new collection of Mobles 114, with designs by Álvaro Siza, Miguel Milá and the architect Germán Rodríguez Arias which have been reissued to be presented, alongside other contemporary pieces designed by Javier Mariscal, Massana-Tremoleda and Eugeni Quitllet.
Products like Fil, a lamp that forgoes ornamentation; MMS table, light, small and stackable; adaptable Tombal, both an umbrella stand and an ashtray, and iconic Catalana, which represents the bond that Pablo Neruda and Germán Rodríguez Arias established during the architect’s exile in Chile. New additions to the collection are Green and Tube stools, and Gracia wood.
A dynamic walking by Barcelona design, accompanied this time by our friends Santa & Cole for the lighting, and greenery Voltasol by livingthings.
It has been a great pleasure to be surrounded by good friends, clients and fans in Milano. Thanks for your visit!
36 objects produced for years have been chosen due to its values as icons of design. Among others, there can be found prototypes of the Pinça (1964) ice tong, or Copenhaguen (1966) ashtray by André Ricard, and also some proposals for the oil container created by Rafael Marquina, and various editions from different years from 1961 to 1990, with a special value as unique pieces of design.
The donation includes also some prototypes of the support for two or three oil containers. Another special design is Fil lamp (1991), designed by Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza Vieira, creator of Oporto chairs (1993) too.
Other remarkable objects donated by Mobles 114 are Gracia chair (2006) by JM Massana and JM Tremoleda; Green chair (2011) by Javier Mariscal, wall clock Nautilus (1996) by Oscar Tusquets, and Flod stool (2007) designed by Martín Azúa and Gerard Moliné.
Mobles 114 donation has become a highlight of the product design collection for the Museum, thanks to the value in the market or as an iconic product of the objects donated. It has increased also the prototype collection, very valuable for the Museum as a first sample from designer or company and model to be manufactured.
