Mable - The Story
As the founders of the Mable brand, dynamic Polish duo Maria and Michal had always loved the idea of flatpack furniture delivered to your home and then self-assembled. But the problem they found in South Africa was that this type of furniture was typically mass produced using low quality materials. On the other hand, custom-built furniture was often prohibitively expensive, taking months to produce. There was nothing in between.
Luckily, Maria is good at solving problems, given that she’s a scientist of astronomy who specialises in analysing data from NASA telescopes. Maria’s scientific knowledge, spatial imagination and meticulous attention to detail were the perfect ingredients to begin designing a modular storage piece that was both customisable and made to their exacting standards. The duo focused on the humble bookcase as their flagship piece, which they called Mable – it’s elegant and timeless, with a nod to their roots (“meble” means “furniture” in Polish).
