Coinciding with Cersaie (the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings) in Bologna, ceramic tile specialist Mutina is presenting its latest products inside its renovated headquarters in Fiorano, Modena. The new Spazio Mutina has been designed by Urquiola Studio in collaboration with Mutina Projects Division as a space to host the entire brand universe – Mutina Collections, Mutina Interiors, Mutina Editions.

Within this robust renovation, the showroom will present installations celebrating the brand’s relationships with designers such as Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Patricia Urquiola, Konstantin Grcic, Tokujin Yoshioka, Raw-Edges, Hella Jongerius and Barber & Osgerby, among others. An area will be dedicated to Mutina For Art, while the whole headquarters is furnished with pieces by brands such as Kvadrat, Vitra, Moroso, Cassina, Agape, Fantini, Frama, Artek, and Mattiazzi, alongside elements designed specifically by Urquiola Studio. 

As in Casa Mutina in Milan, the company pays attention to sustainability; measures include the use of the Grohe Blue Home water system, providing filtered flat or sparkling water to avoid the use of plastic bottles, while a photovoltaic system will be installed, and there is reduced use of asphalt across the buildings.

New products in the Mutina range include small tiles by Tokujin Yoshioka, along with a collection created by Vincent Van Duysen. There will also be new entries in the Editions series, with three new ceramic objects by Yoshioka, Van Duysen and Patricia Urquiola. The idea of approaching ceramics as an element for interior design is compelling: the Editions collection presents decorative objects that are entirely handmade, each of them signed and numbered to underline its uniqueness. The Editions family already comprises pieces by Nathalie Du Pasquier, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec and Avallone Studio.

The opening is a celebration for the company: guests are welcomed by a performance by choreographer Fernando Melo, followed by a dinner by restaurant Da Vittorio. They are then invited to discover the new garden, with more than 3,800 kinds of plants, conceived by landscape designer Flavio Pollano.
