Rest Sofa: 3 Seater
Suffice it to say, this is one sofa that lives up to its name. The defined silhouette and sturdy base is unexpectedly countered by the soft cushioning—making the Rest Sofa a sofa for life. And that includes living, too.
Under the Anderssen & Voll banner, Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll have managed to realize a sofa with the tailoring and comfort of a well-tailored suit, but with the easy of a track suit. Two of the trio who once made up Norway Says, this critically acclaimed duo has also produced an endless array of memorable, functional design, a chunk of it for the Danish house Muuto.

Muuto made its impact on the design world by living up to its namesake "muttos,” the Finnish word that alludes to looking at things with a new perspective. "We give the designers the freedom to create new designs,” says co-founder Peter Bonnén. By giving free rein 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. Expanding on that success, Muuto was subsequently acquired by legendary brand Knoll In 2017, though it continues to be run independently from the company's headquarters in Copenhagen.
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 it was a shared passion for all things design and and the distinctive style they dubbed “New Nordic” that rapidly brought worldwide recognition. "It serves as proof that we have something special to offer the design industry," the partners say. "We're proud to be part of the Knoll family and can't wait to unfold Muuto's global potential further in close collaboration with them."
