While Knoll’s history is rooted in classic mid-century modern design, the company is also known for their powerful partnerships with today’s leading modern designers and their strategic brand development through impactful acquisitions — like the more recent acquisition of contemporary conference and meeting room manufacturer DatesWeiser in 2016.
In its most recent move, Knoll acquired the “resi-mercial” Finnish brand, Muuto, in January 2018. Rooted in Scandinavian design tradition, Muuto is characterized through its enduring aesthetics, functionality and craftsmanship.
Knoll CEO Andrew Cogan said, “Muuto products pair seamlessly with the range of modern Knoll designs, offering expanded breadth and depth of affordable luxury products that reflect today’s evolving workstyles and trends in residential design, with particular appeal to a younger generation of architects, designers and clients.”
Locally, RJE’s in-house Knoll team is excited about the clean and unpretentious aesthetic Muuto brings to Knoll. Tanya Woodward and Tracy Holt, Knoll Representatives who co-locate in RJE’s Indianapolis showroom, said that Muuto’s ability to create welcoming, warm atmospheres will resonate well in office, hospitality, education, care and public spaces.
With its honest and inviting design, Muuto – which means “new perspective” in Finnish – is sure to bring just that to Midwestern workplace environments.
The full range of Muuto products is now available from RJE. Learn more about Muuto here.
