Fascinated by the elemental curved shape of a fallen drop of water, the designers of the Fluid Pendant Lamp have captured its essence with this opalescent glass pendant for Muuto. The subtle irregularity of the hand-blown matte shade means that the silhouette gently changes depending upon the viewing angle. Its soft gentle glow lights the way in any setting and the Fluid Pendant Lamp is available in small or large sizes for use singly or doubling up. Designers Claesson Koivisto Rune of Stockholm started out as a purely architectural firm but have expanded their reach just like their forefathers: "What's worth pointing out about the Scandinavian designers of the 50's and 60's is the strong bond between architecture and design. In that respect we try to do the same thing."

”We give the designers the freedom to create new designs,” says Muuto co-founder Peter Bonnén. Inspired by the Finnish word “muutos” that alludes to having a new perspective, the company aspires to update Scandinavian tradition for a new generation. By giving free reign to the brightest design talent in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark, there’s the breathing room to conjure a new take on a chair, vase or a lamp, Peter says. “The road to success for modern Scandinavian design lies in a strong belief in the best designers of our time.”
Peter and co-founder Kristian Byrge, who originally trained in economics and management respectively, might not have seemed destined to helm a new-influencer design firm. But their passion for all things design and and the distinctive style they dub “New Nordic” has brought global acclaim in just a few short years. “This gives the Muuto designs great diversity and character and further links them to the Nordic heritage—a heritage Muuto is proud of and that all the designers carry with them as part of their professional luggage”, says Kristian.
