Two new offerings from Copenhagen-based Muuto a playful new sofa series and a tall stool
SOFT BLOCKS SOFA
The new Soft Blocks sofa was designed for Danish company Muuto by Norwegian Petter Skogstad, who works at Studio Anderssen & Voll. The Soft Blocks series consists of a three-seater, a two-seater and a pouf, all with Dotty Innofa upholstery, in either blue or grey. The sofa consists of different sized soft blocks, which are compound in an asymmetric way, giving the sofa a playful and unique personality.
Says Skogstad, “The idea behind Soft Blocks was to play around with the proportions of a conventional sofa, challenge straight continuous lines and explore the beauty of asymmetry. The result is a playful composition of soft blocks that are ready to welcome you in the most friendly and comfortable way.”
VISU BAR STOOL
The Visu bar stool is a new member of the Visu chair series designed by Finnish Mika Tolvanen for Muuto. It comes in two heights and three different colours – grey, black and oak – and consists of a lacquered wood shell and base, and a durable steel footrest. The bar stool follows the Visu chair’s Nordic expression with its discrete nature, and is functionally and ergonomically correct in its composition. That is also why Tolvanen initially chose the name Visu, which refers to the Finnish word for “precision.”
Says Tolvanen, ”The Visu bar stool is a natural continuation of the Visu chair. The idea was to create a simple and elegant stool with great seating comfort, supported by a discrete footrest. The proportions of the chair are exactly right, and the chair is able to combine small elegant curves with longer straight lines in the quest of becoming an ever-relevant furniture.”
