Standing as the first in a series of exercises, Creative Directions for MOBILIA is part of a creative venture which successively entrusts distinguished guests with the creative direction of projects.

Kim Pariseau, founder of APPAREIL Architecture, is first to get the projects rolling — not to mention her imagination. Set on a coral backdrop, this young and talented architect achieves sheer brilliance through this stylistic performance.

“Our day-to-day projects always come with guidelines and restrictions. There’s nothing more exhilarating than having complete creative freedom,” says Kim Pariseau. “MOBILIA is offering local designers more and more visibility. That in itself makes the project truly inspiring.”

“Creative Directions is a way of shining a different light on our products, of expressing style through the eyes of various collaborators, and of reaching optimum creative potential 
– Johannes Kau, president of MOBILIA
HERE IS THE MOBILIA WORLD CREATED BY KIM PARISEAU
CREATIVE DIRECTION

With a genuine fondness for Scandinavian design (and having studied in Denmark), Kim has a special love for sleek objects and simple constructions.

LOCAL COLOURS

MOBILIA sets the tone with a coral backdrop. Kim opts for cushions and a few greens boasting a deep yet fresh forest green that acts as a perfect complement, incorporating the intense richness of Quebec and Scandinavian forests.

WOOD WITH PERSONALITY

Building on her unconditional love for raw materials, Kim masters the art of home-grown varieties. Her natural inclination towards elegant side tables carved out of majestic walnut can be seen in many of her architectural projects.

ELEGANCE ETCHED IN STONE

Every stone is unique. Seduced by the noble character of marble, our style editor introduces this material ever so subtly to create a purely Scandinavian feel.

Creative Directions is an ongoing collaborative project…join us in April for the next installment!
