A creative life at the crossroads between furniture, design, and art

We all have a natural need for personal spaces. This was the insight guiding Peter J. Lassen’s creation of the classic 12 mm Montana system. To this day, “making room for personality” is the guiding light for everything we do. Montana Mega expands the classic system with new sizes and a new approach but keeps this ambition close at heart.

Peter's love of playfulness, art and daring choices is always strongly reflected in our products. We still create furniture that frames your life with personality and provides personal space. As Peter J. Lassen would have wanted it.
