DESCRIPTION

Quiet, please. Muuto’s elegantly minimal Silent Vase announces itself with barely a whisper. From his eponymous studio in Oslo, Andreas Engesvik observes that "Silent is about reducing a vase to it's most simple expression. It is the shape of the vase that is in focus.” Made of mouth-blown glass and hand finished, the result is serene and timeless. Andreas has received several international awards and wide recognition for his work with furniture, lighting and home accessories while Danish maker Muuto continues to enlarge the vocabulary of new Nordic design.

ABOUT THE BRAND: MUUTO

MUUTO

”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.

 

ABOUT THE DESIGNER: ANDREAS ENGESVIK

ANDREAS ENGESVIK

Oslo-based designer Andreas Engesvik founded his self-named studio in 2009, after first gaining international notice as part of the collective of young-gun designers, Norway Says, which he had cofounded 6 years earlier. A graduate of the University of Bergen in Norway, Andreas earned his masters degree in design at the country's National College of Art and Design. His firm, Andreas Engesvik Oslo, encompasses work in a range of materials, extending from furniture to tableware to industrial design, for a distinguished roster of international clients such as Iittala, Muuto, FontanaArte, Ligne Roset and Asplund.

Andreas was appointed a guest professor at Stockholm's University College of Arts, Crafts and Design (Konstfack) in 2012. His work has been recognized with numerous awards, including Red Dot Award, Elle Decoration (Norway) Furniture of the Year and Designer of the Year and the Wallpaper Design Award. "I think the field of design is heading to an exciting period," he says. "It's more and more evident we have to focus on quality."
