Because we believe in emerging talent, we have decided to call upon the next generation of Canadians to add their creative touch to our collections and see their ideas produced and distributed in Mobilia stores.
It is with much enthusiasm that we launched, last May, the very first edition of the NEXT contest in collaboration with Index-Design (a Montreal agency whose mission is to connect interior design professionals). The contest offers the opportunity for designers with less than 5 years of professional experience to let their creativity shine by presenting new furniture designs.
When Mobilia was presented the opportunity to be discovered by Vancouver interior designers and architects, we thought of Gillian Segal, the founder of a local interior design firm. It was love at first sight. Gillian joined the Mobilia team as Creative Director for the launch of our new velvet collection, and produced two vignettes showcasing our products. In her most recent blog post, Gillian writes about her experience working with us for this project.
In our first installment of Creative Directions, Denmark trained Architect Kim Pariseau of Appareil Architecture lead our creative teams with her passion for organic designs, sleek objects and simple constructions. Our second installment saw Mobilia’s president, Johannes Kau share how artisans in India are reclaiming centuries old architectural elements to create one-of-a-kind objects of beauty.
