2006. Two young men meet in Denmark, united in the fascination of Scandinavian Möbeldesigns. This was the birth of muuto.
The idea behind muuto was to revive the great era of Scandinavian design furniture. This, however, according to the notion of the makers behind muuto, works only if one does not lose sight of the tradition and at the same time fill it with new life.

The most important pillar for muuto, however, are the designers. Numerous well-known faces from Scandinavia's design schools were united under the umbrella of muuto. Young new talents are also brought into the boat, in the certainty to get many new impulses.
Nevertheless, or just because of that, it is hard to put muuto in a drawer. The results, furniture and designs are too different, because artistic freedom is a major issue at muuto. You let the designers do what they do best, and give them the frees they need to fill the name muuto with life.
One thing is always in the forefront: the furniture should not only convince in appearance and exclusivity, but above all also be practical. To create furniture for everyday life and to provide it with practical benefits is essential at muuto.
It is the idea, furniture and everything that belongs to an apartment, from the viewpoint of the user, which stands behind the creations of the muuto designers. Muuto products are in this symbiosis of design and practicality not just beautiful and practical but practically beautiful.
