The starting point
Montana Møbler A/S offers its customers all over the world a range of different modular systems and occupies a prominent position in the market with its award-winning designs. Founder and designer Peter J. Lassen has made the company a worldwide name with his high-calibre team of designers and a workforce now exceeding 120. In his past life he was employed in the family-run enterprise Fritz Hansen A/S and worked with some of the best designers in Denmark, from Arne Jacobsen, Piet Hein and Jørn Utzon right through to Verner Pan-ton. Today, Montana is managed by the son of the founder, Joakim Lassen. The furniture manufacturer is known not only for the many different ways in which the pieces of furniture can be combined, but also for the unique range of surface finishes with a choice of 42 paint colours and three veneers. The Montana approach is to provide people with a system which allows them freedom and scope for personal development. They love the versatility of the furniture with its infinite number of combinations and are charmed by its purest forms, basic geometric shapes and clean lines.
Specific castor requirements
About a quarter of Montana office furniture is fitted with castors and the trend continues upwards. The company needs a solution which fits perfectly with the design language of the furniture manufacturer and which allows the furniture to be moved easily. It is also important to be able to match the castors to the individual brief in terms of colour because Montana also supplies its chairs, side tables, shelves and cupboards in the 42 Montana colours.
