Muuto release the ‘Airy Coffee Table’ series and the ‘Fiber Chair’ first launched in Milan 2014 for the new season. Leading Scandinavian designer Cecilie Manz designed the ‘Airy Coffee Table’ to come in four sizes, shapes and colours – a soft palette of grey, black, Oregon pine or off-white.
Each table has a unique character that is emphasized in the precise welding of the table’s frame.
Cecilie Manz said, “ The idea behind Airy was to create a coffee table that did not scream, but still was not afraid to speak. The result is a table series that masters the fine balance between being light and airy, and at the same time having plenty of personality and individuality. Due to this combination Airy gets a multi-functionality that makes side tables suitable for every kind of interior.”
The polished plywood top and linear metal base link via the curves, which balance to create a skinny silhouette. ‘Airy’ looks best when grouped in different combinations of scales and shades.
Copenhagen based studio Iskos-Berlin designed the versatile ‘Fiber Chair’ for Muuto using a pioneering shell material of recyclable plastic and wood fibers.
Boris Berlin told Despoke, “One of the most difficult and noble disciplines is to design without eccentricity. To create simple, well-functioning, almost ordinary objects that nevertheless have strong identities. We have designed Fiber Chair to do just that with a clear sculptural language that refuses to compromise on comfort. It’s a chair stripped of all unnecessary layers, leaving the chair with a seat, back and armrests that are integrated in one harmonious shell, perfect for nesting yourself into. The iconic form marries soft, embracing curves with an environmentally friendly wood fiber composite, giving Fiber Chair a distinctive tactile texture while also keeping it 100% recyclable.”
Their team focused on detail, taking into consideration every line and curve to provide maximum comfort with minimum space. The ‘Fiber Chair’ is available in a huge array of colours, premium upholstery and leather options, and four different bases perfect for any dining room, desk, conference hall, auditorium, or office.
