Azulej, the new tiles collection which Patricia Urquiola has designed for Mutina, reminds of the ancient handcrafted majolica, made of hydraulic cement. This tradition – revised with a contemporary look – is serially realised in 20x20cm. It is a strong review of the patchwork composition: an innovative mix and patch, deliberately random, which combines abstract patterns and subtle, neutral colours, a little used. The colours are fixed on the material in an irregular and natural way. A unique and surprising result, which offers compositional freedom and a distinctive design, which preserves the handmade features and combines them with the performances of a high technology material suitable for floors and walls.
