Engineers Abdel Hady Abdel Moneim and Samy Fahim launched the business that would become Mohm in 1974. From humble beginnings in a rented workshop in east Cairo, came a trailblazing project that essentially placed Egypt on the map in the world of furniture design. Today, ‘Metal-X’ is a market leader in expanded metal sheets. Combining the steel-working talents of a master craftsman with a modern design sense and an instinct for distinction, the two ambitious engineers created a line of furniture aimed at young couples building their first home. The furniture was designed to be durable yet economical, with a keen eye for the most contemporary trends.
Quick to position the fledgling company as an industry innovator, Abdel Moneim was among the first to notice the impact computers were having on the workplace in the 1980s, and from this was born Mohm; a line of stylish, durable and ergonomic workstations and office furniture. What followed would ultimately revolutionize the landscape of furniture in design in Egypt.
