Designing this sofa was a sculptural study of how to compose a commodious yet sophisticated sofa using the simplest of components: seat, back and armrests
The Compose Series is a study in creating furniture from essential components, making the sum greater than its parts. The resulting two and three-seater sofas are roomy yet refined; quality and comfort joined by a contemporary Scandinavian aesthetic. The Compose Sofa family comes in a range of textiles with either black or natural wood legs.
ANDERSSEN & VOLL are two thirds of the former Norway Says and among the most prominent and succesful Norwegian designers. They have formerly been named both Norwegian and Scandinavian designers of the year in Norway and have received international awards and recognition for their work with furniture, lighting and home accessories.
ANDERSSEN & VOLL ON THEIR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
“A good product builds and expands on tradition but at the same time, it breaks with tradition. Change and elements of surprise stimulates thought and reflection – even for people who are not very interested in design and even if the change is not radical. That tiny second of reflection is the window of opportunity where we can communicate with the users and that is what we are looking for.”
ANDERSSEN & VOLL ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
“New Nordic isn’t merely a slogan or a description of the collection. It’s a commitment by Muuto to let the brand grow dynamically with the emerging ideas and concerns of young Nordic designers. The term also functions as an invitation, a challenge and a motivation to us as designers.”
