The Artful Home – A Muuto Milan Apartment

Muuto continues its exploration of intentional spaces that evoke and inspire. At Milan Design Week, they presented a Scandinavian perspective on the Milanese apartment. 'What makes up the feeling of home?' Muuto asked during this year's Milan Design Week

Leaning on Muuto's understanding of how design affects our well-being, the Brera apartment exhibition looked at spaces where art, architecture, design, and nature converge to create a stimulating interior – an atmosphere that pulls you in. The six rooms presented an updated vision of the Muuto home, a distinctive universe of colour, light, material, and tactility, displayed alongside new products.

Design news this season includes the Earnest Extendable Table by John Tree and Set Lamp by Jamie Wolfond, shown for the first time at Milan Design Week. Earnest Extendable Table is made in solid oak, a timeless, spacious, and most of all, inviting centrepiece to a home. With a clear-cut profile softened by warm materiality, its beauty lies in the details - slender yet solid.

'A table tends to be the heart of any space. The middle of the house, but also the family or a company of people. It is the epicentre, physically and emotionally. The Earnest Extendable Table is made in one material - solid oak, and there is an honesty to that. In the spirit of that simplicity, I have tried to pair back and refine, to reduce the table to its most essential elements,' says John Tree.

Meanwhile, Toronto-based designer Jamie Wolfond created Set Lamp to inspire new, relatable ways of interacting with lighting. Taking visual cues from the screw thread, it intuitively tells us how to use it – enabling us to create our own sense of space.

Additionally, Muuto showcased a new line extension and colourway for the Stacked Storage System in Milan, fully unfolding its capacity for customisation and playfulness.

For this exploration of the personal home, Muuto invites a range of collaborators to make their mark. Twilight, a series of artworks by the American photo artist Arthur Drooker, welcomes the visitor into a grounding foyer that speaks to the way daylight moves us.

The brand once again partners with Copenhagen-based surface design studio File Under Pop, who provides striking colours for each space - an invitation to sense the way colour affects our body and mind individually, all in the eye of the beholder.

'Creating spaces that feel just right has always been what Muuto is about. In Milan, we were not as much focusing on a single product as creating evocative atmospheres that move us on a deeper level. We hoped to inspire us all to be more intentional about the space where we spend most of our time – our home,' says Line Brockmann Juhl, Chief Marketing Officer at Muuto.
