An elegant and refined highback sofa that provides a private space within its surroundings through an acoustic shield.
The Outline Highback Sofa combines the soft seat and refined lines of the Outline Sofa with a highback element, creating private spheres within bigger spaces that provide shelter for concentrated solo work, conversation and collaboration. The design has a timeless, yet modern expression that makes it an ideal fit in any open-plan space, whether it be office, hospitality or public areas.
Anderssen & Voll

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.”
