The best adventures, or at least the successful ones, are the result of circumstances: the end of a story is the beginning of another. So it was for Mutina, which, in 2006, embarked on a new path. Thirty years of history in the production of ceramics were swept by a wind of change that lead the company to choose a different course focusing on exclusive designs, a tailor-made production that combines technology with hand-crafted details, challenging experimentations that transcend the limits of the materials, and indispensable research for innovation to ensure a high quality product.
This new course ties in with a new way of looking at the role of ceramics, which are not considered just floor or wall coverings anymore but have become an integral part of the interior design of a home: a concept shared by the designers working at Mutina and appealing to those who choose Mutina.
A young company with more than thirty years of history in ceramic production. From 2006 it is directed with new impetus, with brio from a team of young managers. Mutina’s strength is to offer an articulated and flexible project to dress and personalize the interiors. Mutina collaborates with different designers: Avallone Laboratory, Silvia Giacobazzi, Patricia Urqiola, Bendini Associati, Monica Armani.
Mutina has a new way of looking at ceramics. No more tiles, but objects of interior design. Mutina is an artistic project that combines technology, craftsmanship, experimentation and research to push the boundaries of the material itself and create a high quality product.
Patricia Urquiola, Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Tokujin Yoshioka, Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay of Raw Edges, Inga Sempé, Konstantin Grcic and Hella Jongerius are the heart of Mutina. A close-knit team that shares the same passions in their work: art, good design, architecture, product approach and a unique vision of life. Their work is the result of a tireless research to test which craft or industrial techniques (using the latest technologies) are most suitable for producing ceramic floors and wall coverings and providing the architecture with a second skin. That’s why Mutina ceramics have become the preferred choice for public and private spaces, from contemporary domestic interiors to design hotels, fashion showrooms, trendy restaurants, prestigious universities (Luigi Bocconi) and great art temples (Tate Modern), in Europe and all around the world.
Mutina has been internationally recognized with numerous awards for its innovative approach, creativity and achievements in the ceramic tile industry. Some of the most recent awards include the IMM Interior Innovation Award 2014 for the Azulej collections 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 Numis by Konstantin Grcic.
