New Nordic Design

Enduring aesthetics, functionality and craftsmanship combined with innovative materials, techniques and creative thinking have made Danish design brand Muuto one of top players in it's field in under 10 years since the company was founded.

In 2016, Muuto is bringing new perspectives on Scandinavian design with their New Nordic Collection. Here are some of our favourites and new additions to the shop!

FRAMED is a new perspective to the classic framed mirror; it is a decorative design piece that leads your thoughts to installation art. It comes in two sizes and three colour versions. The coloured glass challenges the function of a classic mirror and adds the dimension of decoration to an interior setting. 

Designers: Anderssen and Voll


Mini Stacked is a small and more versatile version of the already well known STACKED Shelving System. The modules are more flexible due to their reduced size and can also be wall mounted in addition to the classic clips solution. and used also in the kitchen and bathroom.

The Fiber Collection is expanding this year with the Side Chair. The shell is made from an innovative bio-composite material that includes 25% wood fibers which give the chair a whole new warm character.  Also, in 2016 the Fiber Collection is growing with an all black version for all the models!

The FIVE pouf explores the possibility and tension of the pentagon shape. The quilted ribs are seemingly wrapped around its shape and enhance the dynamics of its five sides.

The GRAIN lamp combines classic minimalistic design with the use of innovative new materials and brings a new perspective to the pendant lamp genre.  The composite used in the lamp’s construction adds an unexpected softness and warmth to GRAIN, giving its simple form lots of character.  

Designer: Jens Fager




Ambit is a timeless and versatile pendant with a strong character. The dynamic between liniar and rounded shapes creates the attractive outline of the lamp.
