Taken from the Finnish word muutos, which translates to “new perspective,” Muuto aims to introduce the world to a new era of Scandinavian design. Working with young designers from Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Denmark, Muuto provides manufacturing and marketing support, allowing the designers to focus on creating new products.

Danish designer Pil Predahl’s OTO 100 storage system is designed for a generation that is constantly on the move.

“The storage system is made for the modern nomad and inspired by the fact that we move more often in our lives than ever before. It can be separated and assembled very easily.”

OTO 100 is made of a series of fiberglass cylinders that are held together with a strap. When it’s time to move, the cylinders nest inside each other, and the concentric circles can be transported easily.

While seniors at Konstfack School of Design in Stockholm, Petter Thörne and Anders Johnsson won Muuto’s 2009 Talent Award with their design for the Keep Table.

The table is made of wood scraps that are a byproduct of the furniture production process. Thörne and Johnsson arrange the wood blocks, and hold them together with metal bands. There is no glue used in the design, and each table is one-of-a-kind.
