"Japandi" is the name given to a new fusion of stylistic sensibilities. Mobilia describes it as "Scandinavian design meets the Japanese art of living." It is no secret that the aesthetics of Japan and northern European countries have proliferated in the design world in recent years—spanning from furniture and interior arrangement to fashion and footwear. Celebrated for their elegant minimalism and thoughtful touches, it was only a matter of time before the two styles were combined into a hybrid. With its new Japandi collection, Mobilia hopes to communicate simplicity and authenticity in everyday life.
In its furniture and decor design, the company focuses on a pre-established list of influences. From Japan, the brand emphasizes the "absence of distinction between interior and exterior space," the height of furniture, organic materials, and neutral warm colors. From Scandinavian influences, it borrows the importance of light circulation, simple and straightforward shapes, coziness, and soft, pastel colors.
