NUMI by Konstantin Grcic
This collection marks the beginning of the collaboration between Mutina and the German designer Konstantin Grcic. The result is a real conversation about art. An exploration of a world close to the company, which becomes the basis for the study of colors, materials and shapes.
Numi consists of squared tiles – 30×30 cm and 60×60 cm – with a different, partially glazed geometric form, in six different colors. These shapes create a pattern which magnifies into architecture.
Numini, in a smaller size – 5×5 cm – are based on the same principle, but they represent the sculptor soul of the collection, being characterized by a pattern that this time is created by the embossment and not by the glaze. The 6 geometries are carved on an extra matt background which reminds of Numi’s soft cement, emphasized by a smooth finishing and by the usual 6 dusty shades: light three-dimensional effects which create a linear movement. Mosaic pieces in size 5×5 cm, made in homogenous porcelain stoneware, are assembled with glue on sheets in 30×30 cm.
