Muuto – New Brand in Focus

Stacked TV Unit

Muuto is a young company but already an internationally successful design company. Their vision is to keep adding new chapters to the already inspirational Scandinavian design history. This vision is emphasised by the name Muuto – inspired by the Finnish word ‘muutos’, meaning ‘change’ or ‘new perspective.’

Already firmly rooted in Scandinavian design culture, they hand pick the best designers from Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark, and give them the freedom to express their design philosophy when designing everyday home interior products.

From the very beginning, the two founders of Muuto – Peter Bonnén and Kristian Byrge were
highly ambitious and strived to have their products represented in leading design shop all
around the world. Today, just 7 years after the company was founded, Muuto’s collection
of furniture, lighting and accessories is sold in more than 1000 of the World’s leading design shops on six continents. And more than 50 new designs have been launched from around 30 leading designers as TAF Architects, Norway Says, Anderssen & Voll, Lars Tornøe and Louise Campbell, all sharing Muuto’s ambition of reviving the proud Scandinavian design tradition.

Leaf Light in green – love this colour

Leaf Light successfully fuses together LED technology with stunning design. Depending on the viewing angle and how the shade is turned, Leaf table lamp will subtly transform its shape to create a graphic and leaf-like silhouette in the room. Leaf by Muuto is also available in a floor version. Leaf comes in 5 beautiful colours options.

Reflect Sideboard & Drawers

Reflect Drawers by Muuto
Reflect Drawers – love the curved handles

Reflect by Muuto owes its stunning and unique looks to the phenomenon under which it was envisioned: The natural light of Scandinavia. The four corners on each front have a unique thickness and curve that contributes to the light reflections of the drawers. Muuto Reflect is available in two different colours – Black or Natural Oak. Reflect has 2 drawers on the right hand side and 2 doors on the left handside.
