DESCRIPTION

Muuto gives things a boost with Visu Wide, the slightly larger version of its standout curvilinear wood chair. At 4 centimeters wider and deeper than the standard Visu, there’s ever more functionality for use in a dining room, office or in a conference area. With convenience and ease in mind, this model of Helsinki designer Mika Tolvanen's functionally minded chair, with its melding of ergonomics and attractive wood grain, is set on a swivel base in powder-coated aluminum.

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: MIKA TOLVANEN

MIKA TOLVANEN

”My designs are function-oriented,” says Finnish creative light Mika Tolvanen, "but that does not mean they cannot be beautiful at the same time.” Mika founded his Helsinki studio after graduating from London’s Royal College of Art and is part of a lively network of his country’s young creators called the Rehti Design Group. 

For an impressive list of companies such as Muuto, Zanotta and Offect, he has designed furniture, lamps and household goods. Mika’s priority is always to look for ways that design can serve the needs of everyday life. "What really defines objects is how we use them not what they appear to be," he says. "Design should not be the one that requires attention by being special.”
