Cover marks one of Patricia Urquiola’s first ventures with large ceramic slabs. The collection came about from an experimental project using the Continua Plus technology. 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. 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). Mutina recommends a joint of 2 mm to achieve a perfectly modular layout.
