Founded in 2008, this young Danish manufacturing enterprise represents the new wave in Scandinavian design. There are two young designers behind Muuto
, who have set out to develop traditional Scandinavian design in a new and original context. To achieve this, they have called on the creativity of a new generation of Nordic designers such as Louise Campbell
, Form Us With Love
, Norway Says
and Ole Jensen
Muuto takes the very best of Scandinavian talent and gives them total freedom to express their personal vision for an object in daily life. The result: a simple salt shaker becomes a work of art, stacked cylinders form a bookcase and a vase takes the form of cups balanced on top of one another.
The other secret of Muuto design is the element of surprise in the materials they use: an architect's lamp made solely from wood, or a basket created using recycled plastic bottles! The Muuto collection is eclectic, sharp and innovative. Each piece is unique and highlights the world of its creator, their identity. Muuto's success on the international scene is proof enough that the New Nordic Design is on the march. The expression 'muuto', originally Finnish, sums up the entire aesthetic philosophy of the Nordic company: 'opening oneself up to new perspectives.'
