ACCENT compiles a mixture of Nordic design and a playful disposition. From Danish designer Margrethe Odgaard, the cushion highlights her love for bold innovative thinking. The simplicity of the soft canvas form allows the scaled canvas print to mimic a traditional weave, adding visual texture. At first glance, the colours seem vivid and the expressions varied due to the tight composition, but on a closer inspection, the intricate elements become illuminated.

At Muuto, it’s all about finding new perspectives. They take inspiration from their Nordic roots to create pieces that are new and fresh, yet true to their Scandinavian design heritage. They call this approach New Nordic. Muuto creates furniture, lighting and home accessories with that very characteristically Scandinavian style.
At Muuto good design starts with the person. The journey from idea to object is begun by an individual’s spark of creativity. Muuto handpicks the brightest design talents in Scandinavia and gives them the freedom to express their individual story through everyday objects, pushing the boundaries of Scandinavian design in their own way, offering their own new perspectives. How do they see a chair, vase, lamp or any other everyday product? A range full of new perspectives, or “muutos” as the Finnish would say. By giving their designers the space to let loose with their imaginations, the results can often be fantastic.
