A portrait of illustrator Pol Montserrat through his collaboration with Mobles 114

From the first brushstroke to the publication of the finished illustration, Pol Montserrat works following an intentionally experimental process and with each order allows him to shape fluid images and familiar silhouettes using India ink or gouache. From his studio in Barcelona this artist, whose work has given life to several editions of Mobles 114 catalogs, illustrates ordinary scenes in a minimalist and beautiful fashion.

 

 

 

 

 

From that first collaboration, a link was born that resulted in a series of illustrations for the Classics catalog. In them, the Catalana armchair, the Jujol table, the Fil lamp or the Copenhagen ashtray are filled with color thanks to the fluid and conceptual strokes of the artist; diluted and close images that invite the viewer to feel an immediate connection.

 

PEY Table System

 

The latest collaboration between Pol and Mobles 114 was an animation for the video opening of the PEY table collection. In it, Pol turns a neutral scene into a cozy home with his characteristic brushstrokes. The illustrator also intervenes in the video exemplifying some of the functionalities of the set of tables for workspaces or home offices.

 

Just a few quick strokes allow Pol Montserrat to bring us closer in a dreamlike way to the honesty and simplicity that Mobles 114 also seeks in all its designs.
