Bio

JM Massana, Barcelona, 1947.
JM Tremoleda, Barcelona, 1946.

Pioneers of industrial design in Barcelona, both graduated from Escola Massana as part of its first ever intake of industrial design students, in 1969. In 1968 JM Massana and JM Tremoleda, together with Jordi Domènech and Francesc Miravitlles, created “Equip de Disseny”. In 1973, together with Mariano Ferrer, they founded Mobles 114, a furniture store and interior design studio where they don’t only create the store’s designs but also promote the work by other designers such as Carles Riart, at a time when social and cultural changes were taking place in which design would play a vital role.

As a result of its commitment to the aesthetic values of modernity and the promotion of design, Mobles 114 has become one of the country’s leading promoters of furniture, publishing a catalogue of coherent contemporary furniture that emphasises humanistic values as an integral part of its identity. Beyond their indisputable work as promoters at Mobles 114, Massana – Tremoleda also design many of the items of furniture in the collection. Their work stands out for the importance given to the object’s functionality and for their refusal to adhere to purely formalist aspects. Honesty becomes essential and aesthetics the outcome.

Many of their designs still form part of the Mobles 114 catalogue thanks to their timeless quality and continuation on the market; they are items of furniture that, far from being passing fads, are still up-to-date and relevant.

The work of Massana –Tremoleda as promoters and entrepreneurs for the Mobles 114 brand was recognised by the jury for the 2001 National Award “for the perseverance and coherence demonstrated over the years, reflected in the quality of their products”.

Mobles 114

Founded in 1973, Mobles 114 is a company based in Barcelona that specializes in producing contemporary furniture and fittings. Our mission is to create products that improve the quality of public places and homes.

Our aim is to create an affinity with those using our products and to share the experience offered by well-designed furniture and objects.

We advocate both modernity and tradition:  modernity in new designs and tradition in reproducing the items of furniture and objects that form part of our Classic collection. We’re committed to improving people’s quality of life and preserving the environment and we contribute by producing timeless furniture that withstands the passing of time: tasteful, discreet and fad-free.

We have faith in the talent and know-how of our designers to create furniture that lasts; universal pieces of furniture with their own character that help to enhance architecture and add comfort to spaces in different cultures in the world. For Mobles 114, producing means choosing the best designers for the products in our catalogue: promoting creativity through our firm commitment to aesthetic, contemporary values.

We have a holistic approach that goes beyond the product. Our furniture is made in Barcelona and then distributed around the world, always taking these values into account.

Designed in generous sizes, the tables form part of the Gràcia family.

Gracia

Designed in generous sizes, the tables form part of the Gràcia family. Produced using top quality plywood and noble woods, these tables are hardwearing, long-lasting and adapt to the requirements of both the home and catering.

The table has a graceful appearance thanks to the unobtrusive placement of the curved legs and its frame-free design, as well as having a top that highlights the plywood used in its construction.

The collection includes round, square and rectangular formats, ensuring the tables adapt to any requirements.
