The In Situ Modular Sofa is a grand, modular design with sculptural lines that can be tailored to your individual space and taste yet with its modular elements hidden through subtle detailing of its front profile, paired with deep comfort and a soft seat. You can select any of the 30 frame configurations or find your desired frame sections and linking brackets and add them through In Situ Modular Order Guide. Whatever way you choose, you may be sure that you choose something timeless and elegant that will serve you for years.

The Muuto Outline Series adds new perspectives to the classic Scandinavian design sofas of the 1960's, marrying the ideals of simplicity and function into one. With the design taking its name from its strong outline of a sofa, the Outline Series is clean and elegant on the outside with a deep seat and soft cushioning on its inside. The Outline Series has an expression that is at once elegant yet timeless, elevated by its lines referencing architectural shapes alongside its curved armrests, giving the design a distinct appearance across various sizes and variants.

Designed with extensive comfort and a modern expression through the vibrant lines and folds of its back and armrests along with an embracing seat, the Muuto Doze Lounge Chair join together the ideas of Scandinavian design with the lines of 1970's furniture for a contemporary perspective on the archetypal lounge chair. This is 1970s design on a completely new level, modern and extremely elegant but with a touch of memories of beautiful old times when the world was simpler and brilliant design ideas were born.

With refined geometric lines and smooth shapes, the Muuto Oslo Lounge Chair combines Norwegian craftsmanship with textiles from Danish Kvadrat, making it a contemporary addition to any home or professional space. Steel is an alloy of iron with carbon and powder coated steel has a subtle, textured expression and elegant feel while adding durability to the design and making it more resistant to corrosion. Powder coated steel is also highly chip resistant which makes it suitable for any environment.
