Muuto in the Wild

Little by little, Knoll’s Muuto line has quietly popped up all over Fulton Market with its fresh perspective on Scandinavian design. Thanks to a tip from Muuto Sales Representative Brian Bailey, we discovered a handful of spaces within walking distance of Knoll 811 featuring a variety of Muuto pieces.

 

We embarked on a walking tour of the neighborhood to see if we could catch a glimpse of “Muuto in the wild.” Our journey illustrated how this unique line of furniture is transitional in a way that blends and complements many design styles.

 

Here’s what we found…

The first stop was Joe’s Imports where we saw Muuto’s Upholstered Fiber Stool in cognac leather. The boutique wine bar presents rustic décor across the board, but the Fiber Stools enhance its sophisticated vibe.

 

The combination of wood and metal finishes selected by 555 International brings an unfiltered, mature setting to the establishment that is in all ways warm and inviting.

 

Our next step was the fabulous Ace Hotel, known for their modern design and eclectic offerings. Ace Hotel placed Muuto’s upholstered Fiber Chair against raw flooring and tables. The green wool drives the color palette in the room without overwhelming the appeal of neutrals in the design.

 

With each new location, a theme seemed obvious – Muuto is extremely versatile for a range of settings (i.e., offices, training room, hospitality, wine bar, food hall).

 

Finally, we made it to Fulton Galley Food Hall where Muuto is featured in the entrance. The nesting portion of the Airy Coffee Tables were uniquely positioned against an exposed brick column.

 

The Cover Chair in oak balances out pops of color offered by the Five Poufs, which make for a causal, conversational seating environment.

 

The last stop on our excursion was the intimate and effortless Bar Kumiko, which features the upholstered Fiber Bar Stool with a back, as well as the upholstered Cover Chair in black. The simplicity and function at the core of Muuto’s design is highlighted here with a simple color palette.

 

As Fulton Market continues to grow and thrive with new art, new businesses and an ever-changing array of neighbors, we’re excited to see Muuto in the mix brightening these new spaces.
