Mutina Ceramics, Between Indoor and Outdoor Environments

Bringing ceramics closer to naturalness, even outdoors. In the heart of the Brera design district, Mutina has opened the doors of its house on via Cernaia and presents to the public a path entirely dedicated to the collaboration with Ronan Bouroullec.

The brand’s Design Week starts with the new Osso & Bottone collection, which for the first time envisions a dialogue between indoor and outdoor design, created through rectangular tile modules sculpted with perimeter cuts. Adagio, the reticular composition of wall sculpture modules, instead recalls the shape of fabric weaves, celebrating the poetics of slowness. The French designer also signs a new series of Editions, a project launched by Mutina in 2021 that combines the authenticity of artisanal ceramic object production with a contemporary look and feel. The series of vases—Talea, Camino and Camini, Finestra Giorno and Finestra Notte—and the modular candelabrum—Candeliere—are entirely inspired by a bucolic and natural imaginary, produced in limited editions.

Echoing the paradigm of the new collection, Bouroullec’s installations guide the visitor from the Casa Mutina headquarters to the garden of the adjacent Spazio Cernaia, concluding the visit by passing through the loft under the garden. The French designer inaugurated Design Week at Casa Mutina together with CEO Massimo Orsini. Among the guests present at the opening night on April 14 were Patricia Urquiola, Jay Osgerby and Edward Barber, Konstantin Grcic, Vincent Van Duysen, Michael Anastassiades and Shay Alkalay of Raw Edges. The spaces will be open to the public from Monday 15 to Sunday 21 April, from 10 am to 7 pm.
