MOB is an international design incubator that develops furniture projects designed by 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.

MOB Projects aims to establish interdisciplinary crossings around the collective, domestic and rational condition of a intrinsic practice of architects and artists, such as furniture design.

In an attempt to make architecture and art a shareable and comprehensible language, the scale of the furniture appears as a common ground of research, criticism and experimentation for new practices, which through a tactile and close scale, generate a series of questions around the interior space and the relation of the objects with the common world and the domestic user.

Through rationality we can reach a contemporary interpretation of the world and build a theory of society, being this project a tool for reaching in a domestic way those objectives, exploring the closest scale between its creators and people.

‘Domestic Essays’ was the first MOB Projects exposition as an associated project for the Lisbon Architecture Triennale ‘The Poetics of Reason’ at Carpintarias de São Lázaro.


TTTTABLE by MAIO Architects

The board of a table is much more than a mere support: it is a line that divides two worlds. On its upper part certain codes are maintained, there are prescribed ways and conventions. Above that level reigns the protocol, the scopic, the customs and courtesies.

Everything changes under the table. There appear the flirtations, the furtive gestures, the hidden. In this invisible field dominate the unseen signals and the secret codes, the tactile ones.

MASON'S TABLE by BAST
The mason’s table is conceived to be built by any mason.

It uses basic construction materials that can be find anywhere: steel armatures and standard concrete.

It’s construction’s process follows standard masonry techniques.

IN BETWEEN A LAMP by Javier Toro Blum
A beam of light is contained in two oval walls who rises like a silent lighthouse in the space. This lamp not only illuminates but also casts its shadow where light does not come out. The intermediate space allows light to flow like a halo, which partially illuminates the room where it is installed. Like the interior, this lamp is able to finally illuminate the space where it is installed, bouncing on the walls.

KNOTS AND TUBES - SIDEBOARD P by Boris Gusic & Lucio Crignola.

'Knots and Tubes' celebrates construction and functions like a scaffolding system for the living room or the office. It makes all its connections visible to create a visual depth.

Each piece can be extended in all direction to fit any need. It is easily mountable and survives every move to be reassembled in the next place.

BONHEUR DU JOUR by FALA Atelier
‘Bonheur du Jour’ is a pretty tall secretary, comprising a round table, sixteen drawers for documents, two fake drawers, five legs, and a plant in pot.

It is made of ash wood, walnut wood, lackered wood, white marble, black marble, and lackered metal.
It was designed in Porto, Portugal, in february two thousand eighteen.
