Mutina is a brand new way of looking at ceramics. These are no longer tiles, but objects of interior design. Mutina is an artistic project that unites technology, craft, experimentation and research to push the boundaries of the material itself and create a high-quality product.
Patricia Urquiola, Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, Rodolfo Dordoni, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Tokujin Yoshioka, Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay of Raw Edges, Inga Sempè and Konstantin Grcic are the heart of Mutina. A close-knit team that share the same passions in their work: art, good design, architecture, product approach and a unique take on life.
Their work is the result of tireless research to test which artisanal or industrial techniques (using the latest technology) are most suitable for producing ceramic floor and wall tiles and providing architecture with a second skin.
That is why Mutina ceramics have become a favourite choice for public and private spaces, from contemporary domestic interiors to designer hotels, fashion showrooms, trendy restaurants, prestigious universities (Luigi Bocconi) and great temples of art (Tate Modern), in Europe and all around the world.
Mutina has been internationally recognised with numerous awards for its innovative approach, creativity and results achieved in the field of ceramic tiles. Some of the more recent accolades include the IMM Interior Innovation Award 2014 for the collections Azulej by Patricia Urquiola, Tex by Raw Edges and Phenomenon by Tokujin Yoshioka; the Wallpaper Design Award 2014, the EDIDA Award 2014 for the Mews collection by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby and the EDIDA Award 2016 in the Wall Covering category for Numi by Konstantin Grcic.
