After discovering this summerhouse whereas on a stroll about an hour exterior of Copenhagen in 2017, Marie Hesseldahl fell in love with the structure and the best way it blended with the pure surroundings. The one-story, wood “sort home” was designed by famend Danish architects Knud Friis & Elmar Moltke Nielsen of Friis & Moltke within the mid 60s. The unique proprietor noticed the design in an architectural journal and had it inbuilt 1969 in a pine plantation in North Zealand, Denmark. Whereas easy, the home is dotted with particular unique particulars and supplies, together with pine veneer wall paneling, black ceiling beams and built-in furnishings. Not everybody would respect this mid-century gem the best way Hesseldahl did, however as a designer and Design Supervisor for Danish model Muuto, it fell into the appropriate fingers.
The principle dwelling area has uninterrupted views of the panorama by floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doorways and home windows. When opened, the indoor and out of doors areas develop into one making the home seem bigger.
Noticed all through are rigorously chosen items from Muuto, just like the Ambit Pendant Lamp over the eating desk, and the Define Chair in the lounge.
Whereas Muuto performs a component within the dwelling’s furnishings, Hesseldahl combined in items from different manufacturers, together with the moveable Mayday mild (under), by Konstantin Grcic for Flos.
The Muuto Ambit Wall Lamp is the perfect bedside mild for studying a e book or journal.
The Muuto Linear Metal Desk, Linear Bench, and two Linear Metal Armchairs in Darkish Inexperienced create a further eating space on the deck. “When Muuto was coming into the out of doors furnishings market with the Linear Metal Sequence, we wanted to determine a colour vary talking this language. On this course of, I drew a variety of inspiration from the pure surroundings surrounding my home; the prevailing pine tree plantation, the seasonal leaf change, and the heat from the solar,” says Hesseldahl. “We ended up with 4 colours, whereas two of them stem instantly from this inspirational basis–a deep and pure Darkish Inexperienced that leads the thoughts in direction of nature, and a vivid, but calm Burnt Orange mimicking autumn leaves and the burning summer season solar. The 2 attribute colours are supported, strengthened, and creating within the context of their surrounding surroundings. Finally, each have been examined in my summerhouse backyard, earlier than being lastly chosen for the Linear Metal Sequence colour palette.”
Hesseldahl’s summer season residence, with its conventional Scandinavian design heritage, is the proper backdrop and inspiration in the course of the design course of of recent Muuto merchandise because the model needs to “protect and broaden” on that heritage.
