Muuto's latest additions include a pebble-inspired rug and a relaxed lounge chair

The Danish brand adds to its extensive collection with pieces by Tom Chung and Margrethe Odgaard

August 2018
Muuto was founded by Kristian Byrge and Peter Bonnen in 2006. The brand's name derives from the Finnish word muutos, which translates to new perspective – a philosophy they have applied to their collections for the past 12 years.
Part of this ethos comes through in their collaborations with young, upcoming designers, who are able to offer a "fresh perspective" on design's existing archetypes.
Cue Tom Chung's latest addition to Muuto's collection: the Beam Lamp.
Described by the brand as a "versatile table lamp", beam casts light from both ends of a cylindrical shade. Users can alter the volumes of light emitted through the twist of a simple dial. Its base can be rotated by 350 degrees, meaning that light can also be directed and concentrated on certain areas of the home or office.
Also joining the brand's catalogue is the Pebble Rug by Margrethe Odgaard, which features a tactile surface based on the feeling of walking across a stone beach. With a handwoven structure, Pebble Rug contrasts the materials of its soft, woolen loops with its sturdy canvas base in a cooling jute yarn.
Two chairs are also on the roll call of new products. The Fiber Lounge Chair by Iskos-Berlin is designed to have a slightly hovering appearance, utilising softly curving wood and tubing for its frame.
The brand's first highback sofa has been created by Anderssen & Voll, and will provide those working in offices with a private, secluded area in open-plan spaces.
Muuto participated in this year's 3daysofdesign festival in Copenhagen, working with interior architect Natalia Sanchez to transform a co-working space named Nomad into a range of different office environments, all tailored to suit the needs of creative individuals.
