United by a shared commitment to design, Muuto and Maharam are partnering for the first time on a special collection of furniture. While founded more than a century apart, Maharam and Muuto are driven to deliver new perspectives while embracing their design heritage. A focus on utility and longevity underlies both companies’ approaches to product development, as does a desire to design for all without compromise.
These values are reflected in the Muuto Maharam collection, which includes seven pieces of Muuto’s furniture, designs that bring new perspectives to Scandinavian design, reimagined through the application of Maharam textiles and leathers. The Outline Sofa, Oslo Sofa, Cover Chair, Fiber Arm- and Side Chairs, Visu Lounge Chair and Five Pouf are all included in the collection.
NORTH AMERICA'S LEADING TEXTILE CREATOR Founded in 1902, Maharam is North America's leading creator of textiles for commercial and residential interiors. Recognized for its rigorous and holistic commitment to design, Maharam embraces a range of disciplines from product, graphic and digital design to art and architecture. Maharam textiles are in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, among others.
NEW PERSPECTIVES ON SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN Muuto is rooted in the Scandinavian design tradition characterized by enduring aesthetics, functionality, craftsmanship and an honest expression. By expanding this heritage with forward-looking materials, techniques and bold creative thinking, our ambition is to deliver new perspectives on Scandinavian design. In fact our name, Muuto, comes from muutos, meaning new perspective in Finnish. We handpick leading contemporary designers who are strong interpreters of our philosophy and combine their talents with the passionate Muuto creative team to create objects made sublime through new perspectives, enjoyed across the world, representing the best of Scandinavian design today.
