News has started coming in from 3 Days of Design in Copenhagen and I’m excited to see what my favourite Danish design brands presented this year. Held annually, I had the pleasure of attending last year, and seeing all the coverage on Instagram last week brought back lots of fond memories!
The bold exhibition Muuto at Nomad showcased new perspectives on the modern workspace through design and art. Housed in a former courthouse building in the heart of Copenhagen, the pop-up took place at Nomad Workspace, a modern co-working space for budding entrepreneurs and creatives. Designed by Spatial Code, a creative studio founded by interior designer Natalia Sanchéz, Muuto at Nomad presented a new perspective on the Muuto universe through the context of a modern co-working space including open-plan work areas, lounge spaces and conference settings.
In her approach to the interior design, Sanchéz emphasised the application of her intuitively colourful approach to the Muuto at Nomad space, allowing for it to interact with the aesthetic and functional sentiments of Muuto designs.
“For the Muuto at Nomad space, we wanted to explore how product design within furniture, lighting and accessories could shape a creative and playful environment. A workplace to me should echo some of the same sentiments that are found within the home, giving people a welcoming, inspirational and relaxing experience. For Muuto at Nomad, we wanted to make people feel at ease within the spaces that they’d inhabit, using the underlying emotional sentiments of colour throughout the space to communicate the feeling that we’d like for people to have when entering. I believe in creating workplaces that inspire people to create and thrive while feeling temporarily at home and we wanted for the Muuto at Nomad space to communicate that ideal.” – Natalia Sanchez
Bringing the presence of art into the context of Muuto at Nomad, the pop-up saw Muuto collaborate with three different creatives — art and design practice Wang & Söderström, Stockholm-based interior architect Tekla Evelina Severin and Katja Boom, a Copenhagen-based director working within the field of creative and commercial film.
Muuto’s unique way of reinterpreting Scandinavian design heritage with the best of today’s contemporary designers through modern materials and technique is beautifully aligned with the Nomad ethos of new perspectives. An exciting collaboration and visual feast, I love seeing the gorgeous Muuto products styled in this inspiring context.
