Mutina - Osso & Bottone (V.O.C certified)

Mutina Osso & Bottone marks a pioneering venture for Mutina, representing the first collection to be explicitly designed for outdoor spaces while seamlessly transitioning to indoors too. Specially crafted by Ronan Bouroullec, this collection redefines ceramic usage and versatility.

Inspired by traditional materials used for outdoor flooring, the research aimed to find an ideal finish that meets both technical requirements for outdoor use and aesthetic appeals for indoor spaces.

Osso’s layout was curated through cuts that thin the central part, offering the single element an arrangement that is similar to that of a bone. Bottone’s layout was obtained employing circular perimeter cuts, which in the juxtaposition of two elements blending with a 4mm joint, become perfect circles that are reminiscent of buttons.

Offered in two sizes - both Osso & Bottone come in Osso L (75x231 mm), Osso S (30x275 mm), Bottone L (75x321 mm), and Bottone S (30x275 mm), and are both 10 mm thick. They both boast a palette of five hues: Sabbia (sand), Grigio (grey), Rosso (red), Blu (blue), and Verde (green), made from unglazed porcelain stoneware.

These hues were achieved through a delicate mix of earth tones, enhancing the collection’s natural appearance, and accentuating its materiality and texture. With uniform processing technology used throughout the materials’ thickness, the results achieved are? A collection that exhibits superb technical and durability characteristics.
