Knoll acquires Muuto, an affordable luxury brand, to complement its design portfolio

Knoll has announced that it has completed the acquisition of Muuto, the Copenhagen-based designer and provider of affordable luxury furniture, lighting and accessories for the workplace and home.

Founded in 2006 by Peter Bonnén and Kristian Byrge, Muuto – which means ‘new perspective’ in Finnish – has grown into a global brand, working with leading contemporary designers to offer a new vision of Scandinavian design.

The acquisition further advances the Knoll strategy of building its global capability as a go-to resource for workplaces and homes, including the commercial contract, decorator to-the-trade and consumer markets.

Andrew Cogan, Knoll President and CEO, reiterated, “Muuto is a ‘resimercial’ design-driven, creative Scandinavian brand, representing global style for the workplace and home. Muuto products pair seamlessly with the range of modern Knoll designs, offering an expanded breadth and depth of affordable luxury products that reflect today’s evolving workstyles and trends in residential design, with particular appeal to a younger generation of architects, designers and clients and those seeking a homier, more relaxed aesthetic.”
