Muuto celebrates 5 years of bringing Scandinavian furniture, lighting and accessories to the rest of the world.
December 14th, 2011
Design company Muuto celebrated its 5th anniversary in November, marking the occasion with a special exhibition at Copenhagen’s Designmuseum.
Achieving much in these short 5 years, Muuto has continued the long tradition of beautiful Scandinavian design while imbuing it with a fresh vision – as reflected in the company name, derived from the Finnish ’muutos’, meaning change or new perspective.
Muuto was founded in 2006 by Peter Bonnen and Kristian Byrge with the ambitious goal of having its products represented in major cities around the world.
5 years later, Muuto’s furniture, lighting and accessories are sold in more than 700 design stores across 6 continents.
Muuto designers are handpicked from Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark. Designers including Norway Says, Matti Klenell, Harri Koskinen and Louise Campbell have all designed for Muuto over the years, encouraged to express their personal design philosophies and put their own personalities into their work.
“This gives Muuto designs great diversity and character and further links them to the Nordic heritage – a heritage Muuto is proud of and that all the designers carry with them as part of their professional luggage,” says Byrge.
“The road to success for modern Scandinavian design lies in a strong belief in the best designers of our time,” adds Bonnen.
“We give the designers the freedom and inspiration to create new designs, and we see it as one of Muuto’s primary goals to be on the forefront in the development of the designers.”
Muuto is available in Asia in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. For details, visit muuto.com
