Mutina just launched some stunning new tile collections. See them here!

There are decorative tiles, and then there are decorative tiles by Italian tile company Mutina. Conceptualised by some of the best and brightest minds in the design industry, such as Patricia Urquiola, Konstantin Grcic, Barber and Osgerby, and the Bouroullec brothers, every collection has a unique genesis. Mutina tiles are never about just decoration, but telling stories in the stylish environments their products are able to create. RICE is honoured to be the exclusive distributor of Mutina tiles in Singapore, and every year we never fail to be impressed by their progressive new design concepts. Discover the magic of Mutina in these three new collections!

Mutina Mater by Patricia Urquiola

Patricia Urquiola is a pioneer in Mutina’s team. Their collaboration started in 2008, and since then, she has continued to delight and surprise with every new Mutina collection. This year, the Mater collection continues Urquiola’s exploration with pattern and texture. The name Mater comes from the Italian word for matter materia, closely related to the earth used to create the neutral base of the collection. The primitive line drawings speak of the pattern on the floor of Mutina’s meeting room, but in Mater, the pure bright glazes applied on the Uni Beige and Uni Moka tiles are really the star. Textured plain square tiles overlaid with glossy coloured glazes in six colours result in patterned squares with a contrast of positive and negative spaces. These highly tactile surfaces achieve a charming artisanal quality that suits both vertical and horizonal applications.

Mutina Mews by Barber & Osgerby

Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby continue their exploration of colour in their Mews collection, launched by Mutina in 2013. Then, the tiles were available in colours that evoke the historic cityscape of London, with neutral monochrome hues of Chalk, Fog, Ink, Lead, Pigeon and Soot. Now the collection has been enriched with new and lighter shades such as Green, Pink and Light Blue that also have ties to the built environment of London. As with its original palette, each new colour comes in 15 tones that promise movement and depth on a flat surface. The availability of shapes such as a square, rectangle, and chevron in two sizes lead to great decorative potential for both vertical and horizontal surfaces.

Mutina Time by Barber & Osgerby

With the new Time collection, designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby have taken the concept of passing time and presented it in a tangible form that also looks great! Two surfaces, one smooth and the other rough, express natural weathering processes as elements such as wind and rain erode and refine surfaces. Designed to be used together, the Smooth and Rough tiles are both available in a set of geometric shapes that fit into the same grid. The eight available colours are inspired by geology, geography, landscape and place, with names such as Etna Black, Dakota Grey, Dover White, Salta Red, Highland Green, Virginia Blue, Sahara Sand and Atlas Brown creating imagery that brings you places, even at home.
