Muuto 3Days of Design Showroom
This year, Muuto is supporting Ukurant, an exhibition platform and community for emerging designers with the ambition to facilitate and nurture future new perspectives on design. Sharing this ethos of new perspectives while striving to promote new ways of thinking and working in design, Muuto and Ukurant have an inherent desire to strengthen the position of today's emerging design talents, bridging the ideas and innovations of new generations with the established design scene.
COIL COAT RACK
The Coil Coat Rack finds its unique identity through its coil-shaped form along with adjustable, slideable hooks that are brought into play for a simple yet characterful element that breathes playful function into the design. While its shape is inspired by the curled-up form of rolled paper, the Coil Coat Rack allows for the user to add additional hooks to make the design uniquely theirs.
The Coil Coat Rack is designed in monochrome shades of Black, Plum and Dark Green that have been anodized for a contemporary sentiment while the form language of its hooks slide effortlessly into the coil shape of the rack for a unified look.
LOFT CHAIR WITH ARMRESTS
Inspired by life’s everyday requirements, renowned designer Thomas Bentzen’s Loft Chair for Muuto exemplifies honest, simple design. Now, the design is introduced with elegant armrests that bring added comfort and functionality to the chair.Being defined by its contrasting materials—the warm sentiment of wood alongside the industrial feel of powder coated steel—the Loft Chair features a curved seat and backrest for proporations that bring maximum comfort to its user. This aspect of comfort is now being enhanced even further through the addition of armrests, positioned in a refined manner from the back base of the design.
RAISE CARAFE & GLASS
With their shapes inspired by modernist still life paintings yet interpreted in contemporary shapes and colors, the Raise Carafe & Glass by Swedish- based design duo Broberg & Ridderstråle have an inviting expression that encourages interaction when in use.
Having the slight raise of its foot lends the glass an elegant look while hinting its user to raise the glass up to a toast when with friends and family. Available in the colors of Clear, Indigo and Ochre, the design encourages one to combine the different colors together for a personal and playful table setting. Being made in mouth-blown glass, the Raise Carafe & Glass have a unique identity through the differing shades of its glass hue for a characterfully artful expression.
COVER BAR AND COUNTER STOOL
The Cover Chair Series by Copenhagen-based designer Thomas Bentzen currently features an Armchair, Side Chair and Lounge Chair. Now, a new member is added to the series: The Cover Bar & Counter Stool.With its curved backrest that folds elegantly around its back legs and ties the design together, the Cover Bar & Counter Stool challenges the possibilities of veneer through a forward-thinking approach, echoing the ideas of Scandinavian craftsmanship. Being lightweight in its form, the design features a tall, enveloping back for extensive comfort that allows its user to be seated for several hours, be it for a dinner, a drink or even for work at a counter desk.
The Wave Tray by Milan-based design duo CARA \ DAVIDE brings a refined sentiment to the otherwise raw materiality of metal. Through its organic form that has been shaped in stainless steel, the expression takes its inspiration from the undulations of a wave.
The Wave Tray has a simple yet graphic expression that, paired with its grand size, makes a true statement in any setting. Being as a sculpture in its own right, the Wave Tray brings a modern touch to any space whether it be on the kitchen counter, for holding keys and artefacts as well as when placed on dining and coffee tables with its size allowing for it to be used a center piece object.
WORKSHOP TABLE – HOME OFFICE SIZE
In the spring of 2020, the Workshop Table by award-winning designer Cecilie Manz for Muuto was introduced. Now, the table is introduced in a new, slimmer size, designed to fulfill the needs of the modern home office.
Joining together the ideals of Scandinavian craftsmanship and subtle detailing, the Workshop Table has a deliberately simple and archetypal expression. The Workshop Table translates the understated elements of timeless elegance into a simple design. Here, the seamless integration of the tabletop and legs echo the refined sentiments of the Scandinavian design heritage, making for an elegant detail.
CONNECT SOFA MODULAR SOFA
The Connect Soft Modular Sofa by Norwegian design duo Anderssen & Voll is designed from the idea of uncovering the harmonic proportional connections between the different components within a modular sofa. The design brings a geometric and elegant perspective to the archetypal modular sofa, paired with an ultra-soft comfort for hours of laid-back relaxation.
Having an ultra-soft comfort at its heart, the Connect Soft Modular Sofa features understated details of its defined box stitching, adding a firm sentiment to its form while boxing in its inviting seat. Alongside this are the small feet underneath the sofa that subtly elevates the design for a slightly hovering appearance.
