Mutina Mattonelle Margherita
by Nathalie Du Pasquier
With Mattonelle Margherita, Mutina has worked with colour, along with the artist Nathalie Du Pasquier, creating a complex project featuring a blend of different aesthetic and formal means of expression. The collection is characterised by a dual concept: on the one hand, a simple, minimalist style, evident in the plain-coloured elements, and on the other, a courageous, creative approach, characterised by a large variety of graphics. In total it is composed of 41 patterns designed by hand, available in two sizes.
The elements are created in glazed porcelain stone- ware, with a traditional industrial production meth- od of the kind used in the past. To obtain the best possible result in terms of finish and colour, careful research has gone into the glazes, in order to identify the most reactive, so as to give a bright, vibrant finish to the satin-effect surface. The combination of pure white glazes and transparent, waxy glazes, applied in abundance, guarantees a natural-looking surface, on which colour is absorbed, maximising its effect.
