At MUUTO`s head office
Situated on the top floor of a classic Copenhagen five floor building in Østergade at the middle of Copenhagens city center, the Muuto showroom and head office gives us an inspirational and exciting welcome. The airy and bright rooms compliment the Muuto products giving them a fitting presentation, and we guess this surely must be an inspirational place to work as well. The showroom is located towards Østergade (Strøget), with a roof top terrace above the office area, and the people working with the Muuto brand describes their design approach as a striving to expand the strong Scandinavian design tradition with new and original perspectives. To underline this ambition the name Muuto is inspired by the Finnish word ‘muutos’, which means new perspective. For Muuto good design starts with the person. That is why they handpick the brightest design talents and leading contemporary designers in Scandinavia, and give them the freedom to express their individual stories through everyday objects. The success is obvious; what started as a little firm with only a few objects not many years ago, today has 110 employees and a whole range of products designed by more than 30 internationally known Scandinavian designers. “You will know our design because it has muutos” Muuto says. “Objects made sublime through new perspectives, enjoyed across the world, representing the best of Scandinavian design today”.
