“Question everything, keep the good” is a statement that speaks to the core values of Montis, a Dutch furniture manufacturer founded in 1974. Montis strives to unify quality, craftsmanship, functionality, comfort, and aesthetics in the furniture they create. The Montis logo references the simplicity of the circle shape, a symbol they say transcends cultural beliefs. The Montis furniture design reflects the company’s artistic transcendence through each piece’s distinct voice and elegant essence. Montis prides itself on creating sleek furniture pieces that are geometrically playful, comfortable, and high quality down to the details.

Overview & History

Founded in the south of the Netherlands in 1974, out of the open-minded spirit of the 1970s, Montis is a brand that prides itself on its modern and pragmatic design theory and warm and friendly values.

The founding designer, Gerard van den Berg, led the brand through the 1980s, during which the company produced many collections that are still favored today. In 1990, van den Berg transitioned out of the company leading to Gijs Papvoine assuming the role of the head designer until 2013. Afterward, the brand began collaborating with renowned Dutch designers such as Gert Batenburg, Dick Spierenburg, Arian Brekveld, and Geert Koster, as well as other international leaders: Niels Bendtsen, Simon Pengelly, and Christophe Marchand, to name a few.

Over the years, Montis continues to draw from its unique design method, mainly its foam molding facility, which is one of a kind in the Netherlands. The use of its facility minimizes residual waste and guarantees comfort and longevity while allowing for creative freedom. Montis seeks to design furniture with playful shapes, which is possible through its shape-foaming process that coats curved steel frameworks in polyurethane foam.

Montis pieces are now widely sold in over 40 countries around the world. The company continues to source materials locally, in the Netherlands and nearby countries, to achieve premier quality furniture pieces, allowing the consumer to find the balance between maximum ambiance and optimal comfort.
