Design, a useful and powerful resource to denounce and act in favor of a better Mediterranean. Design for Posidonia is a brave proposal from Here We Are Collective to raise funds to help GOB Mallorca protect the Posidonia meadows in the Balearic Islands.
GOB is an NGO founded in 1973 with the mission of improving and preserving the environmental conditions of the Balearic Islands to achieve an environment of ecological and social sustainability.
Here We Are has selected 12 pieces designed by different authors and has produced an exclusive and unique green-painted piece that pays tribute to the Posidonia ecosystem. Mobles 114 has participated with the Luco stool, designed by Martín Azúa, that will be auctioned in a charity event at the Il Giardinetto restaurant, in Barcelona. All funds raised will go entirely to GOB and will serve to raise awareness on the need to preserve the marine ecosystem of the Balearic Islands.
Adolfo Abejón, AOO, BD Barcelona, Cristian Herrera, Javier Mariscal, Maria Pratts, Marset, Max Enrich, Nani Marquina, OWL, and Santa & Cole have also participated in this adventure.
Posidonia is an ecosystem of vital importance in the Balearic Islands, endangered by trawling practices, water sports and polluted waters. Considered one of the oldest plants on earth, it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999 in some of the existing meadows on the islands of Ibiza and Formentera.
Mobles 114 produces its furniture taking into account the environmental impact from the beginning. We are aware that the design phase is the most influential and, therefore, we think of a global vision that transcends the product to influence the production and distribution phases. Our furniture is manufactured in Barcelona and distributed worldwide taking these values into account. That is why we are proud to participate in this project with Here We Are. Congratulations on the initiative and thanks for having us.
Following the donation of the Jujol 1920 table to the Barcelona Design Museum, Mobles 114 organized a conference about the designer, Jujol. The conference was carried out by Josep Maria Jujol (the architect’s son), Juan José Lahuerta (Director of the Gaudí Chair), JM Massana and JM Tremoleda (founders and editors of Mobles 114).
Pilar Velez, director of the Barcelona Design Museum, highlighted the importance of reissuing products and adding them to the museum’s collection.
The Jujol 1920 table is a re-edition of probably the only existing copy of this table, displayed at the National Art Museum of Catalonia and recently reissued by Mobles 114.
Josep Maria Jujol talked about his father, an architect and a designer; a multitalented figure and a complete artist lacking the recognition he deserved. With the re-edition of this table, we want to contribute spreading the importance of his work.
Juan José Lahuerta framed JM Jujol in the historical period of the late 19th and early 20th centuries in which Jujol developed his work. A unique, risky, and often radical work, that melts in the different styles with which it coexists. Lahuerta also underlined Jujol’s collaboration in some of Antoni Gaud’s works, claiming a joint responsibility of the parts they designed together. An example of this is the reform they started in the Cathedral of Palma (Mallorca). Jujol and Gaudí, both with deep Catholic convictions, were expelled before they could finish the project due to the incomprehension of the canons, ecclesiastics who did not know how to appreciate a work too radical for their time.
JM Massana and JM Tremoleda, proponents of reissuing products and objects maintaining their contemporary essence, highlighted the modernity of the Jujol 1920 table and the reasons why they considered adding the table to the Classics Collection of Mobles 114.
The event was initiated with an introduction to the Bauhaus by Xema Vidal. Vidal briefly explained the « idea » of the Bauhaus. Vidal’s pedagogical knowledge made the postulates of modernity very understandable, noting that the most remarkable feature of the Bauhaus is « the idea. » A school with few years of existence that transcends throughout the years and which influence lasts to our days.
Tallers Ribas and the company ROLACO were the manufacturers that produced furniture under the influence and also with the license of the Bauhaus. Ricardo Ribas and Pedro Feduchi were the speakers who respectively took us on a historical journey of the business trajectories in the cities of Barcelona and Madrid. From the beginning, the two capitals pointed towards Europe’s modernity, and these two companies were crucial in the dissemination, production, and sale of the aesthetic values claimed by the contemporary architecture of the 30s.
Antoni Mañach and Nina Masó talked about the GATCPAC lamp, reissued by Santa & Cole.
Mañach, philosopher and a professor at the ESDI school, developed a modern version of the Bauhaus thought, mixing concepts about the theory of artistic revolutions and its apparently contradictory authors, generating intense chaos that highlighted the idea of the action of design based on raging thoughts and sensible production (the head and the feet). Nina Masó, Santa & Cole’s publisher, shed some light on the GATCPAC lamp re-editing process that Santa & Cole incorporated into its catalog in 1995. The reissuing process was inspired by an original lamp owned by Raimon Torres, son of Josep Torres Clavé; outstanding member of the GATCPAC.
Oriol Pibernat and Gabriel Moragas talked about the GATCPAC chair, reissued by Mobles 114 under the name of Cadira Torres Clavé 1934 (Torres Clavé 1934 Armchair).
Oriol Pibernat, historian and a professor at the Eina school, provided GATCPAC’s historical context and talked about how its members moved away from Bauhaus modernity trends and its designs with chromed steel tubes, adapting to their own geography: The Mediterranean. Pibernat defended the will of GATCPAC members to sign collective authorship of the furniture they designed. Both a stance and a political and social claim that they carried out as a collective in the fields of architecture and design. Gabriel Moragas set out the background and different versions of the GATCPAC chair and explained how they decided to reissue the armchair that was renamed after Torres Clavé when it was added to the Classic Collection by Mobles 114. It has been proved that although GATCPAC defended collective authorship of its designs, the armchair was designed by Josep Torres Clavé, inspired by Ibiza’s famous cadirals (armchairs).
The Salone del Mobile 2019, in the city of Milan, ended on the 14th of April. It was the 31st time Mobles 114 had taken part in this Fair, celebrating its 58th edition in 2019. Without a doubt, the Salone is the most important opportunity in the world to present new products and trends in furniture at an international level.
The Mobles 114 stand, designed by Stefano Colli, exhibited the new products launched by Mobles 114 in 2019, extending its catalogue of chairs, tables, accessories and shelving aimed at homes, hotels and restaurants, offices and also public areas.
Colli’s collaboration helped to highlight the brand’s new product structure and convey the new visual identity created by Folch Studio, but the stand’s sober design also served a crucial purpose, using flat white surfaces that contrasted with the warmth of wood to help the product truly express itself.
One of the additions to the 2019 catalogue by Mobles 114 is a new table from the Gràcia family, made from plywood using oak or walnut and available in a wide range of round, square and rectangular sizes ideal for both the home and businesses.
Another new member of the Gràcia family is the upholstered chair in the version with a cushion and cushion-backrest, together with a great variety of fabrics and colours by the Kvadrat and Gabriel brands in their different types of materials.
We have expanded the Classic Collection catalog with the Jujol table designed between 1920 and 1927 by the architect Josep Maria Jujol. This is a reproduction of the table exhibited at the MNAC (National Art Museum of Catalonia). It comes from the house where J M Jujol lived, on the Rambla de Catalunya in Barcelona and, given how it was constructed, we can conclude that it’s a prototype, a unique model which we have reproduced and now forms part of the Mobles 114 Classics catalogue.
The stand was able to present the entire collection of seats by Mobles 114 and its designers, displaying the unity of style and timelessness that Mobles 114 always strives for in its collections.
The Tria shelving system was once again the star of the stand, the system’s great capacity and features being demonstrated by a shelf measuring 7.2 metres wide and 4.5 metres high. The latest version of the self-standing Tria shelf also took centre stage at the exhibition. The designer Martín Azúa helped us to decorate the Tria shelving, creating an exquisitely beautiful sculpture.
The Totem mortar is a limited edition, a collection made up of three different totem models which have both a decorative and practical function: they can be used as pestles to grind spices, pigments, plants and seeds, among other things.
Many thanks to all those who visited the stand. We look forward to seeing you again next year!

From 23rd to 25th November, CCIB Barcelona hosted the event InteriHOTEL, consolidated after 6 years as the most important marketplace for hotel furniture. Mobles 114 has participated thanks to RED, at the RED Lounge created by interior designer Elia Felices.
Lounge area is the recreation of a real lounge, where visitors and participants were able to chat, meet and have coffee. For this edition Felices wanted to « stay out of the typical idea of a lobby »: it is a patio with two enormous collages, like a lively street. « A space with a funny style, but without polluting the furniture, which is the main character here », she explains. That way she was able to create a collective image, main aim of RED, with the sets of each company as a global identity.
Mobles 114 chose products marked by metal and wood, raw materials for the novelties 2016.
It was a double celebration: on Thursday 3th, MODA was celebrating its 10th anniversary with a special exhibition at the store, and the guests (professionals, architects, designers, journalists, influencers) were found a complete installation of Tube in the front of the store. On Saturday 5th, took place the official presentation of Tube, presented by Eugeni Quitllet with his usual passion and international knowledge, who captivated all: both the fans like the aesceptics.
The curious look of this tireless « dreamsigner » and a speech that reflects their own experiences, without frills or baroquisms, again amazed everyone.
Since its launch, Tube has collected good reviews and congratulations from influencers all around the world, and national and international journalists have recognized its originality, functionality and commercial possibilities. As Anatxu Zabalbeascoa, one of the most respected Spanish journalists in the field of design, says: « (Tube) is a fearless seat. Iconic and daily chair, which has served to both (Mobles114) key producer of Catalan design -as the Torres Clavé chair for the Republic pavilion in 1937- and the designer -conscious but no slave of technology- step forward. Together. Both in the search of a chair which, apart from good-looking, is a comfortable seat even in the most unfavourable conditions”. (El País, 9th September 2015).
