LARS TORNØE'S DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
“I select my ideas very carefully. A concept has to give me great motivation, otherwise I kill it. A lot of my initial ideas include an abstract vision of the expression and personality the product should communicate. Translating this into physical form is my favorite part of the design process.”

LARS TORNØE ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
“New Nordic illustrates a new time, a new world and new influences. An important evolution of our design heritage. I am proud to be part of it.”


In fact, our name Muuto, inspired by the Finnish word muutos, means new perspective.
