Casa Mutina Modena is an immersive showcase of minimalist interiors
Designed by OEO Studio, Casa Mutina Modena comprises four apartments showcasing Italian tile brand Mutina’s entire range. The immersive setting merges iconic design with a calming interior scheme
Italian tile company Mutina launches a new interiors service, previewed with a new space in the heart of Modena. Dubbed Casa Mutina Modena and located in the historical town centre, the project comprises a series of apartments that offer an immersive view of the brand’s products. The spaces are fitted out and furnished to showcase a curated mix of colours, textures and materials, as well as contemporary and modern design pieces.
The interiors were created by Copenhagen-based practice OEO Studio, which devised four apartments (available to the brand’s guests and staff, and accessible by appointment). Each embodies a different visual moodboard that highlights the Mutina range and the possibilities of the company’s materials.
A minimalist interior destination by Mutina
‘Casa Mutina Modena has been the perfect showcase for us,’ say designers Thomas Lykke and Anne-Marie Buemann of OEO Studio. ‘It has allowed us to work with the entire Mutina range, combining the ceramics to enhance their individual spirit. As they say, a single image is worth more than a thousand words.’
Each of the apartments created by the duo is based on a specific colour scheme (dark, light, grey and green), and the spaces feature Mutina collections by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Tokujin Yoshioka, Hella Jongerius, Konstantin Grcic, Barber & Osgerby and Patricia Urquiola. The design is completed with Mutina’s Accents collection, a series of interior accessories, paint, wood and metal finishes that complement the ceramic tiles. Furniture includes pieces by Achille Castiglioni, Alvar Aalto, and Hans Wegner, with raw wood and muted textiles defining the minimalist interiors.
The spaces merge OEO’s contemporary Scandinavian sensibility with the diverse aesthetics of Mutina’s collections, and offer a panorama of the brand’s creative efforts as well as a beautifully designed refuge in its Italian city. §
