Italian manufacturer Mutina launched their new porcelain tile collection at the Clerkenwell Design Week. Created by French design brothers Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, the Rombini collection explores colours and a sense of ‘vibration’ at its heart.
Rombini uses squares, triangles and diamonds in a palette of symbolic Bouroullecs’ colours – gray, blue, green, red and white, to create infinite combinations with other colours. It is ceramics vibration through different worlds.
Carré are 40×40 rectified slabs in glazed porcelain stoneware, are produced on a mould made of many little embossing diamonds. It is available in two versions: Uni, where colour is evenly distributed throughout the whole slab, and Light, where colour is used to underline the white diamonds outlines.
With Losange, the shape of the rhombus becomes bigger and turns into a chip of a mosaic. Made of double charge porcelain stoneware, each piece is installed on 27.5×25.7 cm sheets.
Thanks to Triangle, the shape of the rhombus is interpreted in its three-dimensional shape, in order to create games of lights and darkness on the surface: the elements, realized in Large and Small versions, seem to arise from the floor and to carry on the wall covering.
