July 2012 Contract Newsletter

Is it just me or is 2012 flying on by? It was wonderful to meet so many people at the DesignEx in Sydney in May, thank you for coming down. And now it is Melbourne’s turn. We will be opening our Fitzroy showroom doors to the A&D community on August 17 & 18th for Saturday In Design 2012. It will be a busy few days but a whole lot of fun too. We always have something up our sleeves, so to stay in the loop make sure you follow us on Twitter. There has been a lot happening with all things Great Dane and we love hearing your feedback and excitement for our range. Have you seen the NEW contract website? We are loading more and more of the range available exclusively to designers and architects each day! Look forward to seeing you soon! Cheers, Sarah

Latest & Greatest

We are taking part in Saturday in Design 2012 on the 17th & 18th August in Melbourne this year. We're looking forward to our second SID experience and our first time participating in this event in Melbourne. If you haven’t been able to check out our new showroom in Fitzroy, this event will certainly be a great opportunity too. We will be showcasing Benjamin Hubert’s new range from De La Espada, introducing you to our new lighting supplier -­‐ Swedish brand Zero and also opening the Muuto concept store within our Fitzroy showroom. Phew! But that is not all, Clark Street Roasters will be keeping you fired up and….well, I can’t give it all away. Make sure you plan to stop in and see what else is happening…I have a feeling you might want to linger for a while. See you at 175 Johnson Street Fitzroy on the 18th of August!

Featured Brand

We are striving to expand the Scandinavian design tradition with new and original perspectives. In fact, our name Muuto, inspired by the Finnish word muutos, means new perspective.

To us good design starts with the person. We handpick the brightest design talent in Scandinavia and give them the freedom to express their individual story through everyday objects. Some want to alter the world, others find passion in colour and shape or draw deeply from personal experience. How do they see a chair, vase, lamp or any other everyday product?

You will know our design because it has muutos. Objects made sublime through new perspectives, enjoyed across the world, representing the best of Scandinavian design today.

Product Discovery
Benjamin Huber for De La Espada

The collaboration between Benjamin Hubert and De La Espada presented the opportunity to develop a range of interior products utilising the skills and knowledge of artisan craftsmen, affording fewer compromises than more industrialised projects. This allowed for greater exploration in the handmade and manipulation of natural materials with greater emphasis on quality.

The result is a range of crafted products with an industrial aesthetic, made utlising tactile materials where the hand of the maker can still be seen and valued. This is embodied in hand-­‐turned marble with the organic marks of the cutting tool clearly visible, woven automotive leather with hand-­‐stitching and overt timber joinery detailing. The range has an industrial, minimal language with a playful look at functionality, honest construction and engaging materiality.
