Mobles114, TRIA + FOSCAS

A classic re-imagined

By Brian Gallagher 15.10.20

Design companies are currently being forced to come up with original and eye catching ways to present their products given the cancellation of design fairs and mass gatherings. Mobles114 has done just that with a creative collaboration with A00 Studio – the result is a new version of an established classic and a completely new collection of pots and plant holders in a highly unusual finish that is inspired by TRIA – the shelving system now launched in an impacting new colour black.

TRIA is available as a self supporting or wall hanging shelving system that can be adapted to a wide variety of uses. Manufactured from aluminium with a powder coated finish the folded plates provide the rigidity while a back cross brace ensures strength and stability. The different models can be combined in order to provide a simple shelf, a kitchen storage system, a living room sideboard or even a bedroom wardrobe. Endlessly flexible the new timber doors, closing mechanisms and shelves add to the versatility of the design options.

    First designed in 1978, the TRIA shelving unit is a contemporary design classic that continues to be produced in different finishes. Its latest version features black powder coated aluminium and wood for the shelving and cabinets together with easy closing doors that allows new combinations and styles.

    For this new version, the sideboard incorporates a mechanism to silence and soften the closing of the doors, together with a new design for the handle as well as new bearings that improve its operation. The new walnut or natural oak wood finishes can be combined with white, grey or black cabinets.

    The drawer unit has also been improved, with a new handle design and marked new smoother pull-out guide rails. The closure using a magnetized device, in turn makes opening easier. And likewise, the black colour has been added to the sides (in all their heights), to the steel shelves, to the lattice shelves and to the desk.

    Without losing the essence of the combination of painted steel and wood, characteristic of TRIA shelving since its inception, these new cabinets bring warmth to a metal shelf or complete the configurations in which wood is the protagonist.

    FOSCAS, by AOO Studio

    The FOSCAS collection of pots and planters designed by A00 Studio was conceived as a decorative feature for the Mobles TRIA shelving, and a test of its structural capacity. The black ceramic is achieved by the oxidation of the iron in the clay during firing. A process that takes place by sealing the oven once the wood combustion has finished, retaining the smoke and letting it cure for about two entire weeks. An age old traditional technique, practically disappeared, that currently keeps Bonadona Terrissers alive in Quart, Girona. Starting from this cooking process, M114 asks AOO Studio to make a series of pieces finished off with this technique.
