Genius Modular Household Storage from Montana of Denmark

May 17, 2017

Montana of Denmark solves household storage challenges by enabling its customers to design their own furniture. The company was founded in 1982 by Peter J. Lassen, a naval officer turned furniture designer who launched his career by working with his father-in-law, Fritz Hansen, and a who’s who of Scandinavian design greats, Arne Jacobsen and Verner Panton included.

Now run by Lassen’s youngest son (Lassen himself is still involved), Montana continues to tackle unexplored corners of the home; it recently launched new lines for the entry and bath. As always, its approach is simple and practical, offering modular, cube-shaped furniture and accompanying accessories that can be combined in countless ways—and ordered in 42 colors. Here are some of the possibilities we’ve been admiring.

Montana’s components are made of MDF finished with water-based lacquer. Prices reflect the fact that manufacturing takes place in Denmark on a small scale.

Two shelving modules mounted together can be put to use as a bar (or a desk). Note that the lower cube has a fold-down door—one of the many add-on options.
