Mobilia is a family-owned Australian company that offers high-end furniture, lighting and design objects. Founded with an ingrained passion for design and craftsmanship, we curate and represent the world’s most iconic and innovative brands, design masters and pieces.
Our History and Values
Mobilia began when our family immigrated to Perth from Italy in 1969 and set up a small furniture workshop. We specialised in pieces that espoused expert craftsmanship, finer details, experimentation with form, raw beauty of natural materials, and rare design idiosyncrasies that come with the maker’s touch. Our furniture garnered a reputation among elite designers and high-end buyers, locally and world-wide, but as the world of furniture design has changed and evolved, so too has Mobilia.
Today, we do not manufacture furniture much anymore. Rather, we curate and represent the world’s most iconic and innovative brands, design masters and pieces that reflect the values we championed in our workshop way back when. It is about connecting people to a world of design that brings to life important cultures, art, histories, movements, communities, aesthetics and personal narratives. In doing so, we seek to enrich everyday lives, the design community, and the world around us, today and tomorrow.
We are committed to promoting and contributing to a culture of design on both a national and international level. Most notably, our Design Circus charity event continues to broaden this cultural awareness through exhibitions, talks and workshops that create dialogue within the design industry.
Since 2014, Design Circus has brought some of the world’s leading design identities to our shores including Pepe Garcia, Xavier Manosa, Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien, Jaime Hayón, Patrizia Moroso and Michael Anastassiades. The event also connects us to our social responsibility of giving to local charities.
We believe one of the best forms of sustainability is longevity. The brands we represent share a focus on design excellence, quality and craftsmanship with authentic pieces that are made to last a lifetime. We choose to partner with like-minded companies who focus on continually evolving with clearly defined sustainability initiatives in place.
Further to this, our brands also promote best practice employment conditions for their workers. All of our major brands are 100% made in Europe by leading international companies who dedicate significant resources to furthering their sustainability practices.
