The clay is blended with a mixture of micro-grit, which is then used as a base for the coloured patterns applied using the silk-screen method. These may be irregular, figurative or geometric. This technology was necessary in order to obtain a compact material with powders, grains and flakes, without the addition of colour or digital applications. To pursue this objective, Mutina has carried out specific research that makes Cover a unique product in the field of large ceramic slabs.
Patricia Urqiuola remarked, “We have strived to achieve new material properties on our large slabs. The body of this material is already designed to contain a natural grit, a light blend that acts as a base for slightly contrasting materials, with modern patterns and modules applied using the silk-screen method. Large slabs with irregular large patterns, with different intensity and density of colour, that are reminiscent of the variable landscape of the sky in which the clouds move around continuously.”
In the basic version, the collection consists of unglazed porcelain stoneware body (UGL), while in the versions decorated using the silk-screen method, the bodies are glazed (GL). Cover is available in the nominal sizes 120 x 240 cm, 120 x 120 cm, and 30 x 120 cm with rectified edges.
