What will future workspaces look like? What is the ideal office environment? These are questions arising within our evolving world of modern working; offices have morphed into multifunctional spaces that include gyms, meditation rooms, retail spaces and some even come equipped with champagne buttons. Now Danish design stalwarts Muuto are getting in on the act with a pop-up co-working space at Nomad in Copenhagen.

‘Well-designed workplaces are a key elements of keeping employees inspired throughout the workday,’ explains Muuto design director Christian Grosen. Opening as part of 3 Days of Design in Copenhagen, the project aims to address the idea of a working space through the lens of art and design. Using the brand’s dynamic contemporary collections, they have built an installation that includes lounge, conference room and a communal working space in a vibrant yet minimalist Muuto finish

‘We believe that the workspace of tomorrow will evolve towards a more residential expression, bringing the aesthetic and functional sentiments of home into the workplace’ says Grosen. With this in mind, the brand commissioned interior designer Natalia Sanchéz of design consultancy Spatial Code to realise the welcoming space, ‘we wanted to make people feel at ease within the spaces that they’d inhabit, using the underlying emotional sentiments of colour throughout the space to communicate the feeling that we’d like for people to have when entering,’ she explains.

This aura of calm is reflected in the textures and muted palettes, as seen in Anderssen & Voll’s Connect Modular sofa in the lounge, the new Enfold sideboard by Thomas Bentzen in the workspace (launched at Salone del Mobile), and Cecilie Manz’s Workshop chairs. In addition, quirky artworks pepper the space in the same palette, including a wall installation by Copenhagen/Malmo-based Wang & Söderström who have created playful patterns using Muuto’s The Dots coat hooks to form a cosmos-inspired backdrop for the communal workspace.

A celebration of new perspectives in creativity is an ongoing part of Muuto’s design ethos, and Nomad is the perfect place to express this. Formerly existing as an old courthouse in the city centre, it has now transformed into a hub for an eclectic group of creatives. Hans Peter Hertz, co-founder of Nomad Workspaces explains ‘we have people working within an array of disciplines, whether it be artificial intelligence, graphic design, drone technology, software development, art or any other discipline.’ We hope they all will feel at home with Muuto.
