Mutina derives from the natural need to urge top designers to bring their ideas, for the first time, to the world of ceramic covering materials. It was thanks to this intuition that in 2005, the brand set off down a brand-new road, with the aim of challenging the rules of ceramics in terms not only of scale, texture and composition, but of creativity and experimentation.

Mutina is a design project developed by a heterogenous team that shares the same unique vision. The collaboration with Michael Anastassiades, Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Nathalie Du Pasquier, Konstantin Grcic, Hella Jongerius, Laboratorio Avallone, OEO Studio, Raw Edges, Inga Sempé, Patricia Urquiola, Vincent Van Duysen and Tokujin Yoshioka sprang from a friendship and a huge sense of mutual respect, as well as from the challenge of experiencing the endless range of textures and colours, spacing from delicate and neutral shades to the most bold and vibrant ones.

In 2021, this constant research has resulted in the Editions: decorative objects developed by the designers and artists of the Mutina team, produced in Italy by skillful master potters. Beyond any evolution and interpretation, Mutina has developed a strong, recognizable identity, also thanks to the essential high quality of the product: innovative yet perfectly balanced and inviting, a product to reach out and touch.

Sensitivity for shape, a desire to innovate and to take on board an incredible variety of visual stimuli from today’s world have been part of the Mutina universe since its inception, but it was not until 2016 that these elements came together in Mutina for Art: an ambitious, varied program in which contemporary art plays a central role, including MUT, This Is Not a Prize and Dialogue. This important step reflects the company’s desire to organize and structure its commitment to contemporary art, in order to make it a source of influence, experience and above all to generate dialogue and exchange.
