The Muuto Design Contest is an open-call design competition that seeks to discover the next generation of icon accessories. With a progressive and forward-looking approach, Muuto is on a mission to support new talents in the design world, encouraging them to keep manifesting new perspectives and bringing innovative ideas to the industry.


All individuals with a background in design or related fields are encouraged to participate. Muuto encourages designers to explore the essence of Scandinavian design while introducing new perspectives that challenge traditional notions and elevate the everyday.

Win an opportunity to exhibit your product at 3daysofdesign 2025 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The first prize winner will showcase their design with a possibility for production or limited production and will receive 5000€ in prize money.
Second and third prize winners will also have their products displayed at the event and will each receive 2500€ in prize money.


The contest focuses on small home furniture and accessories that blend form and function. We seek designs that offer new perspectives on accessories for hallways, living rooms, dining rooms, offices, and more. These are not items to be hidden away but cherished as beautiful objects in themselves. Your proposal should complement the Muuto universe and our current assortment, creating functional yet sculptural pieces that enhance any room.

“The Muuto Design Contest provides a platform for designers to showcase a diverse range of creations and ideas. Part of Muuto’s DNA is searching for new perspectives, and we want to challenge ourselves and collaborate with creative minds from around the globe.” – Line Brockmann Juhl, CMO at Muuto. 

A jury composed of Muuto’s design team and external experts from the design and creative industries will choose the winners and finalists.

The Jury will emphasise registrations that embrace a contemporary approach, encouraging contestants to experiment with natural materials, forms, craftsmanship, functionality, and durability while challenging the status quo with innovative reinvention.

An external jury of seasoned Muuto collaborators - Jamie Wolfond, Josephine A. Hoffmeyer and Ivy Ross, bring decades of experience to the occasion and will be joined by a internal Muuto team to form a well-rounded panel.


Please attach your design proposal as a PDF - maximum file size 20Mb. Your design proposal should clearly articulate the design process and contain the following:

• High-quality photographs capturing the essence of your design.
• Context visualisations showing the use of the product.
• Considerations about the design's scalability.
• A video presentation of your design concept.
