MOB is an international design incubator that develops furniture projects designed by contemporary artists and architects. Based in Lisboa and Santiago de Chile, MOB aims to invite young creators from different parts of the world to present proposals that confront their points of view around a piece of furniture. Through exercises based on their own local realities, these pieces are located in a global scene and then finally return to the intimate context of their daily use.
We invite creatives with both emerging and established careers, always under the premise of looking for fresh and particular voices with their own style and challenging their contexts. In this way, we want to materialize personal research into products capable of transmitting the complexity of social and formal thinking. We aim to produce commercial pieces that establish connections capable of developing crossovers between multiple places, creators, users, and ideas, through a production model based on commissioning design by invitation, manufacturing and distributing certificated limited editions by MOB ensuring high production standards. MOB is founded by Eduardo Corales (Architect PUC), Javier Toro Blum (Artist MA Sculpture in the Royal College of Art, London) and Piedad Aguilar (Fashion Researcher MA Fashion in Goldsmiths University of London) under an interdisciplinary approach with the intent of blur barriers and bet for the expression of unique voices within art, design and architecture.
