Modos was started by two guys in Brooklyn who were frustrated with most of the furniture on the market. Much of the ready to assemble furniture is made to look simple to assemble, but is actually challenging. When moving into new home, furniture is often thrown away and replaced because it does not withstand the move or does not fit into the new space. They thought there was a better option. That’s they we invented Modos, a user-friendly furniture that assembles without tools and can be reconfigured into a different shape each time a move occurs. Modos is a high quality and sustainable product for a reasonable price that will stay with you for a lifetime.
Modos is a tool-free furniture system that uses connectors and boards to make any furniture you want. We believe that furniture should be an investment. If you move, get married, have a baby or inherit your uncle’s record collection, our reconfigurable and durable furniture can change with you, saving you time and money.
The wood panels are made from 13 layers of kiln-dried, sustainably harvested birch, which is then laminated with maple or walnut veneers, making them incredibly strong, stable and beautiful. The layers are held together with soy based glue (not some scary formaldehyde based glue) resulting in the highest quality, forest and family-friendly wood you can buy.
The connectors are extruded from aluminum with an impressive tolerance (+-0.014"). They are strong and lightweight.
If you haven't guessed already, the vast majority of all of our materials come from or have recycled content, are eco-friendly, sustainably harvested, and can be either recycled or composted.
We're proud to say that Modos is made in the USA. Our connectors are manufactured in the Southeast. The wood boards start in North Carolina and are finished at our offices in the Brooklyn Navy Yards in Brooklyn, New York. Modos is a member of New Lab, an interdisciplinary space designed to support entrepreneurs.
