By pushing it to the limit, as the saying goes, renowned Copenhagen designer Thomas Bentzen says he achieved his heart's desire in the Cover armchair. Going for a crisp update on the traditional shape, he spent 3 years playing with the twists and turns of molded veneered plywood to create lightweight but exceptionally sturdy seating. Produced by Danish brand Muuto, the chair is made without any metal parts. Instead it is locked together by the bent veneer armrests. In lacquered ash in a variety of hues or natural oak veneer, Cover is highly adaptable as a desk or dining chair or on its own as an accent piece.

”We give the designers the freedom to create new designs,” says Muuto co-founder Peter Bonnén. Inspired by the Finnish word “muutos” that alludes to having a new perspective, the company aspires to update Scandinavian tradition for a new generation. By giving free reign to the brightest design talent in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark, there’s the breathing room to conjure a new take on a chair, vase or a lamp, Peter says. “The road to success for modern Scandinavian design lies in a strong belief in the best designers of our time.”

Peter and co-founder Kristian Byrge, who originally trained in economics and management respectively, might not have seemed destined to helm a new-influencer design firm. But their passion for all things design and and the distinctive style they dub “New Nordic” has brought global acclaim in just a few short years. “This gives the Muuto designs great diversity and character and further links them to the Nordic heritage—a heritage Muuto is proud of and that all the designers carry with them as part of their professional luggage”, says Kristian.
