Danish designer Thomas Bentzen designed Mingle cushions for Muuto. Thomas Bentzen on the design “My idea was to create a cushion series based on the simple mingling of textile and colour. The process was at the same time both straightforward and complex. It turned out to be an exciting journey through colour and texture and in the end we found colours and textiles that complement and mingle well with one another. The Mingle family, being a very inclusive group, also loves to mingle with each other in your sofa.”
Fabric Combinations are Field/Steelcut, Coda/Steelcut, Coda (all from Kvadrat). Filling is feather / fibre material. Dimensions are 40×60, 50×50 or 60×60 cm.
Thomas Bentzen, former designer at Louise Campell Studio, started his own studio in 2010. He is co-founder of the design collective REMOVE and his products have received International recognition at fairs and exhibtions all over the world. Thomas Bentzen on his design philosophy; “I like to create objects that are functional and simple and meet the human need while in use – and simply create joy while not. For me durability means quality, form and functionality. And putting an immense amount of energy into making virtues out of necessities.” Thomas Bentzen on new Nordic design; “To me Scandinavian design has always been about honesty and functionality comprised with poetry. I like it that way. And I think Scandinavian designers have succeeded into bringing their heritage into a time, where we no longer stand next to the cabinetmaker, but are challenged and thrilled by new materials and new ways to produce.”
