Montis keeps innovating with design that meets the needs of modern life – without making concessions in terms of comfort. In this process, the boiundaries of artisanal traditions are pushed, and new techniques developed. By combining the ideas of renowned designers with those of up-and-coming creatives, we remain full of surprises – also in terms of sustainability and use of materials. That’s how today’s icons become tomorrow’s classics and how it remains as Montis’ aim.
Gerard van den Berg (1947) attended a vocational course in furniture production at the technical secondary school, Rotterdam. A joint founder of Montis, Gerard was a dedicated designer at Montis for many years (until 1990).
