Muuto is a Scandinavian design brand, rooted in the Scandinavian design tradition characterised by enduring aesthetics, functionality, craftsmanship and an honest expression. By expanding this heritage with forward-looking materials, techniques and bold creative thinking, Muuto’s ambition is to deliver new perspectives on Scandinavian design.

One of its new perspectives is the Stacked Storage System, designed by Copenhagen-based architect Julien De Smedt.

Arrange and rearrange the Stacked Modules to create the storage system that you’d like, whether it be as shelving setups, sideboards, bookcases or side tables. The design can easily be refreshed by playing around with the space between the modules or mounting the modules with backboard directly onto the wall. With the use of small clips, the modules are fastened together for a stabile storage solution.

PH 3/2 Amber Coloured Glass ‘Water Pump’ Floor Lamp – Limited Edition

By In the news No Comments

In the 1950s, Louis Poulsen introduced a new reading lamp by Poul Henningsen, the celebrated pioneer of Danish design. Because of its adjustable arm that can be levered up and down, the lamp was immediately dubbed ‘The Water Pump’. In honour of Poul Henningsen’s legacy, the PH 3/2 Amber Coloured Glass Floor Lamp is Louis Poulsen’s PH Limited Edition 2019.

The Water Pump retains PH’s famous three-shade system from 1926, which he invented to reduce glare and enhance illumination in his lamp designs. The shades are made of mouth-blown amber-coloured glass – golden on both sides and slightly translucent, which produces a warm and inviting light. In the late 1920s, Poul Henningsen and Louis Poulsen introduced coloured glass lamps to attract new customers, but perhaps the golden ambience that the shades created also reminded the designer of the old days before electricity became standard in every home, sitting at night in the soft glow of kerosene lamps.

The base, stem and arm are made of untreated brushed brass that enhances the authentic feel of the Water Pump to create a sophisticated, yet intimate and cosy ambience in any interior. The light switch can be traced back to Henningsen’s 1927 table lamps. Also crafted from brushed brass, the through-switch is located at the end of the arm. Henningsen’s initials are beautifully engraved beneath the switch. The PH Limited Edition 2019 will be available between 1 October and 31 December.

Poul Henningsen

Poul Henningsen was born in Copenhagen by the famous Danish actress Agnes Henningsen. He never graduated as an architect, but studied at The Technical School at Frederiksberg, Denmark from 1911-14, and then at Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914-17. He started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture, but over the years his professional interests changed to focus mainly on lighting which is what he is most famous for.

Preparing for Autumn

By In the news No Comments

This morning, the sun endures past dawn.  August has come and gone, September nearly so.

Summer’s last stand, done.  Autumn has taken hold…Holidays, a memory. Tears of departure, and some of return.  Obligations are gathering but home, the hearth, a late night whisky are in the air…
