Mater by Patricia Urquiola

Mater by Patricia Urquiola
Mater – name that comes from materia, matter in Italian, which recalls the earth used to realise the neutral bases of the collection – is a project where glaze becomes the true protagonist, being applied with an innovative glazing technique which allowed for the creation of a tactile effect with great visual impact. It is an industrial collection able to convey the same sensations of an artisanal product, suitable for residential and commercial spaces, indoor and outdoor.

Patricia Urquiola

Patricia Urquiola, Spanish architect and designer, but Italian at heart, joined the Mutina team in 2008. She designed numerous collections, including Déchirer, Bas-Relief, Azulej, Tierras, Déchirer XL, CelosiaEl LoboMaterChamotte e Jali.
“The collection was inspired by the floor in Mutina’s meeting room. Massimo and I wanted to reinterpret that artisanal element. So, we started this journey full of empathy and discoveries. In fact, Mater is made of technology, experimentation, craftsmanship to the eye and to the touch.”
