The work of Laboratorio Avallone is characterised by the inclination to use surfaces with very distinctive and deep textures, both engraved and embossed, highlighting the material itself.
The collaboration between Laboratorio Avallone and Mutina team begun in 2019, developing Chymia collection and The Cylinder Glass, the first company’s limited edition project that focuses on Murano glass.
The research carried out by Laboratorio Avallone reaches into the applied arts, drawing on the arts of painting and sculpture to create unique and very special objects of contemporary furnishing. The epicentre of the design team is Gennaro Avallone, a master and experimenter, who for over twenty-five years has been continually exploring the limits and possibilities of surfaces with meticulous research that strives to create excellence.
“There has been an elective affinity between Mutina and Laboratorio Avallone for over twenty years, a harmony that enables us to share our passion for the intrinsic qualities of ceramics. Materials for me are a means to an end and have come to represent that alchemical transformation when the skills of designing and creating fuse in all their complexity.”
