A beautiful cross between Scandinavian design and Japanese lifestyle, the Japandi trend first emerged at the beginning of the year 2020. With its warm simplicity inspired by Scandinavian interiors and its Japanese-inspired Zen and sleek character, it quickly became a hit. Now, let’s see how Japandi became Japandi 2.0.
Among the defining features of Japandi, version 2.0 retains the Japanese aesthetic of floor-level furniture, clean straight lines, and minimal decorative elements. The use of natural materials, such as wood, stone, and textiles, is also maintained.
“A key aspect of Japandi is that every object has its place and purpose, resulting in a functional space.”Sophie Ohayon, Marketing Director at Mobilia.
In addition to the cool pastel colours like pink, blue and green found in the 2020 style, the Japandi of 2021 adds a little more black and gold to bring some much-needed comfort.

A Japandi 2.0 collection by Mobilia
With the Easton collection, Mobilia reinvents its famous Japandi style collection with a modern twist. Black ash wood pieces that bring a modern and elegant touch. The vertical linear patterns remain, offering a strong visual impact, but the look is lighter and more delicate, even closer to the floor.
In keeping with the goal of maintaining practicality and functionality, the Easton collection features storage compartments (adjustable shelves and soft-close drawers) hidden by openwork doors without handles.
One of the pieces, the Easton sideboard, even contrasts the rectilinear shapes with a single rounded corner that softens the minimalist style of the original design.
Last year, we told you how the Japandi hybrid style featuring the best of Japanese and Scandinavian designs could transform your living space into an environment that invites zenitude and well-being… it appears that this warm and elegant aesthetic is here to stay in 2021.
