TRIA: the story of a shelve

In a Barcelona that was starting to configure itself as a unique creative space, JM Massana and JM Tremoleda took in 1973 the inheritance of past intellectual revolutions and updated it with a personal twist: that’s how Mobles 114 was born.

That prolific context was also the birthplace for TRIA (1978), a shelving system which perfectly symbolizes the identity of Mobles 114: obsession for function, elegant pieces, pure design and timeless shapes, and of course high quality materials.

These references come from the interest of the founders of the company for getting back and reinterpret furniture from the 50’s, a trend very popular nowadays. Designs with marked characteristics like sober lines, functionalism, contention and elegance.

TRIA is a shelving system in both wall and freestanding version, adaptable to any kind of home ambient (living room, kitchen, dressing room, home office, library) and also contract spaces (shops, offices, studios).

114: the story of a number

Brand Mobles 114, founded by JM Massana, JM Tremoleda and M Ferrer in 1973, had its first headquarters at 114, Enric Granados street in Barcelona.

The origins of the name are very obvious indeed. Number 114 was part of the first logo, designed by América Sánchez, and was present at the street facade for the first years.

For the last revision the company opted for a change of the corporate image, designed once again by América Sánchez with the collaboration of Helena Tremoleda.
