Who We Are


MOBO is a new generation manufacture and design studio of contemporary design furniture for the commercial and residential environments.

Founded eight years ago in Montreal by Philippe Tanguay, the Canadian enterprise uses metal, wood and glass in a fusion of elegance and simplicity while quality of materials and construction remains a primary focus of the MOBO credo.

In MOBO’s view, industrial potentials are to be applied to satisfactory design standards.

This will influence both functional and aesthetic aspects of the business process.

MOBO’s founder, Philippe Tanguay, comes from a less than linear background. The entrepreneur began his career as a lawyer in Montreal, Canada, in 1990.  He traveled extensively across Europe and Asia, especially Indonesia, and China.

He moved to China and lived there for several years, first to study at Beijing People’s University and then to work across the country.
Upon his return from Asia, Philippe founded MOBO as a platform for entrepreneurial, industrial and design expression.
