Montana Free — The Teklan Edition

Montana launches a new collaboration with colourist and photographer Tekla Evelina Severin who has curated two new colours for the Montana Free shelving system. Explore Tekla’s daring combinations of cheerful colours in a pure expression of joy.

Since colours are always relative and never absolute, I find it endless exciting to search and find new colour dialogues, new combinations.

Built on the freedom to change

Montana Free is crafted to last – yet designed for change. Move it around, expand it and add textile panels in eight different colours to create personalised screens between rooms, and alter the transparency of the shelving as desired. Display your dearest memories and share them with someone. Montana Free is not just a piece of furniture; it’s a big, open canvas.

The shelving system has all the marks of Montana’s unique DNA and the high quality you would expect. It was originally designed by the award-winning Danish designer Jakob Wagner.

Colours curated and carefully mixed

The new colours for the Montana Free system consist of two options. A mix option of Iris shelves and Masala pillars – and an option in Masala monochrome. In stores until September 2021.

Playful compositions

Montana Free consists of 12 compositions that you can choose with an optional interposed shelf. The compositions range in size and function from the smallest design: a two-shelf bench that can fit under a window – to the largest solution: a six-shelf unit perfect as both an airy and decorative room divider or a spacious shelving unit placed against a wall. 

Optional, vertical textile panels are available for the shelving system and allow you to play with colours and expressions, create personalised screens between rooms, and alter the transparency of the shelving as desired. 

Interior architect and photographer

Tekla trained as an interior architect before taking to Instagram to express her frustration with the dominance of bland beige and grey tones in the interiors around her.

Since 2012, her Instagram profile @teklan has been a paean to colour, line and shape. Abstract images, still lifes and wallpaper compete for attention in a grid that readily reminds the viewer of the sheer joy of colour.
