The inspired idea which is still today a guiding concept of Mvsevm collection originated in 1984. The grand heritage of formal and functional design as expressed in furnishings and everyday domestic objects was seen in a new light thanks to the Werkbund initiatives, the theories of the “Neue Sachlichkert” and the arts and crafts associations such as the British Arts and Crafts which provided a new insight into the dynamic merging of arts, crafts and industry. It is on the basis of this stylistic intuition, painstakingly refined and developed through the years, which has led to the creation of an extensive and coherent collection of designer furnishings, produced and distributed by the same company: Mvsevm Collection.
The deep insight into the cultural spectrum of this century, and the search for those artists who best express contemporary tastes has led to the reproduction of the works of famous masters such as Mies Van der Rohe, Alvar Aalto, Marcel Breuer, featured in “The Classics of Modern Furniture” range. As well as the works of less well known artists, but equally valid and amazingly up–to–date, such as Jean Michel Frank, Takehiko Mizutani, Frederick Kiesler, Gerald Summers, Wassili and Hans Luckardt, Isamu Noguchi, George Nelson and Jules Leleu.
We designed the new logotype and catalogue of the collection that has been produced since 30 year in Italy with philological accuracy, faithful to the original designs in terms of the materials and forms.
