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."

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."
