About the Project

13 years after Muuto’s founding, the Scandinavian design brand is proud to introduce its new HQ in the heart of Copenhagen. Spanning across a combined 1400m2, the address of the new HQ has been that of Muuto since 2013 when the company moved into a single floor in the building. As a natural progression of Muuto’s continued growth, the new Muuto HQ is now comprised of three floors along with a rooftop terrace, overlooking the Copenhagen skyline. On Muuto’s approach to creating a space that could at once serve as a workplace and flagship of its brand ethos, Marketing Director Line Brockmann Juhl says: “It was integral to us that we embraced the various ways of working that Muuto’s employees exercise throughout the workday, providing them with facilities that allow for a multitude of work modes: collaborative sessions, formal meetings and solo work sessions, while embracing the social, informal encounters that happen throughout the day,” and adds: “Combined with these multifunctional requirements were a desire to create a new perspective on the modern workplace, brought together under the values and philosophy of Muuto.”

What’s unique about it

As a natural extension of Muuto’s continued emphasis on wellbeing in design and its A Space for Being collaboration with Google, Reddymade Architecture and Johns Hopkins University for Milan Design Week 2019, the spatial design approach of the new HQ has explored the relations between design, space and the workday of Muuto’s employees, creating atmospheres that facilitate the function of a given workspace. The activity-based zones are created through Muuto’s designs that serve a functional and aesthetic purpose, in line with the given work type, as well as through the use of color, materials, shapes, tactility and more. This approach to activity-based zones is founded in the belief that our senses activate our intelligence, prompting the creation of spaces that have a purpose that is not only functional but also aesthetic and biological.
