Montana Free — A freestanding shelving system of 12 fixed compositions

Montana Free is made for change. Leave your mark. Tell your stories.

The Montana Free shelving system is a new furniture for a new way of living. Stand-alone shelf, easy to assemble, irresistibly moveable. The Montana Free shelving system consists of 12 fixed compositions that come with or without an inserted shelf. Add the flexible textile panels for a touch of colours and alter the transparency of the shelving as desired.

Designer: Jakob Wagner

Built on the freedom to change

Montana Free is designed to last. But also made for change. Because life changes. Your mood changes. Your needs change. So does Montana Free. Move it around, expand it, add more colours. Cover it with memories or go full-blown minimal. Share it with someone or keep it to yourself. 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.

I have based my design of Montana Free on Montana’s design DNA, however, created a freestanding storage system adding new storage solutions and offering even more freedom and thus the opportunity to curate even more personal homes.

12 standard compositions

Montana Free shelving system consists of 12 standard compositions that you can choose with an optional interposed shelf. The standard 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 allow you to play with colours and expressions, create personalised screens between rooms, and alter the transparency of the shelving as desired.
