With Mattonelle Margherita, Mutina has worked with colour, along with the artist Nathalie Du Pasquier, creating a complex project featuring a blend of different aesthetic and formal means of expression. The collection is characterised by a dual conception, a simple, minimalist style, evident in the plain-coloured elements, and on the other, a courageous, creative approach, characterised by a large variety of graphics. In total it is composed of 41 patterns designed by hand, available in two sizes. The elements are created in glazed porcelain stoneware, with a traditional industrial production method of the kind used in the past. To obtain the best possible result in terms of finish and colour, careful research has gone into the glazes, in order to identify the most reactive, so as to give a bright, vibrant finish to the satin-effect surface. The combination of pure white glazes and transparent, waxy glazes, applied in abundance, guarantees a natural-looking surface, on which colour is absorbed, maximising its effect.
SIA Award-winning riceLAB
riceLAB was developed to take our clients’ experience to new heights with many industry-first innovations to make the process of tile selection easy and convenient. Our intention was to change traditional mindsets toward tiles.
The experiential and experimental lab took its design cue from the aesthetics of design hotels. The distinctively different living concepts on each floor was sensitively planned to offer a systematic flow of various functions for a unique and efficient tile shopping experience. MATERIAL LAB and PROJECT LAB are equipped with interactive work stations; enabling tech-savvy visitors to visualise their tile choices under different types of illumination.
