Colours are never static, never boring, never quite the same.
They interact with sunlight, with other colours in their surroundings and the items you add to them. The Montana colour palette features 30 poetic and complex colours, developed in collaboration with colour expert Margrethe Odgaard, to have both a visual and sensory appeal, all intertwined in a close-knit family that will match no matter how you choose to combine them.
Throughout history humans have gone to great lengths to add colour to objects, clothes and works of art – subtracting colour pigments from minerals, bugs, cobber and even arsenic, lead and radium to get the colour just right. Luckily, today the process of creating new colours is less comprehensive and de nitely less poisonous. While not using actual pigments from nature, many of our 30 new colours take their inspiration from nature and the world around us; spices, plants and herbs.
The Montana colour palette spans cold to warm colours, and light to dark colours to encompass all moods and ambiences. Each colour has its own texture and surface.
- After finishing, all edges and surfaces are primed four times with a UV-hardened lacquer, then polished. Montana's surface coating is water-based, highly durable lacquer that is formaldehyde-free and does not contain any fumes or harmful substances.
- To clean, use a clean, dry cloth or a cloth wrung out in soapy water and wipe dry immediately.
Many pieces from the Montana System are available in select positions; wall mounted, with legs, with plinth and with castors (wheels). These positions essentially dictate how the system will be mounted or sit in your environment.
It's possibleo order different position elements at a later date to change how you use your Montana System.
The wall mounted units include a suspension rail to mount the system to the wall. The rail consists of one piece attached to the unit and one attached to the wall. It also includes adjustable knobs so that the system can be adjusted horizontally if required as well as spacers which control the distance between the system and the wall. The system hangs 8mm from the wall, to allow for space for cabling.
Legs are available in matte-chrome zinc, brass, lacquered in Montana colourway Snow and Black. The legs themselves are 12.6cm high and are adjustable up to 20mm. The legs have a load capacity of 50kg.
Plinths are available in 3 and 7cm heights. The plinths are painted MDF in the same colour and finish as the unit they're selected with. Each plinth has 4 internal adjustable feet so they can be levelled on the floor before the shelving system is placed ontop. Plinths include a pre-drilled hole on the inside so they can be connected horizontally if constructing a large system that required sideways stabilization.
The plinths are shallower than the unit so that you can position the unit further forward (to give more of a floating effect) or flush to the front (to allow for space behind for the baseboard or to run cables).
Unit Depth / Plinth Depth
- 20cm / 18cm
- 30cm / 28cm
- 38cm / 34cm
- 46.8cm / 44cm
- 60cm / 56cm
The castors are available in black/black and grey/black plastic and can take a load up to a maximum of 75kg. Each castor includes brakes.

The furniture company’s latest, expansive palette, released in 2019, has come into being in collaboration with expert and colour-alchemist, Margrethe Odgaaard. The new scheme - which includes 42 stock colours - explores how the colours relate to one another, to our bodies, to other materials, and to their spatial surroundings.
