Mutina

2 Tex and Azulej by Mutina

This always-innovative tile company presented its fourth collaboration with Patricia Urquiola called Azulej, and its second one with Raw Edges called Tex. Azulej, made of hydraulic cement, is a deliberate mash-up of patterns and neutral tones that’s reminiscent of hancrafted majolica. Tex, however, is a vibrant line (10 colours) inspired by the textures of fabrics. The rhombus shape of the tile derives from the basic knitted stitch.

3 Goccia by Lea Ceramiche

In either black or white, these 3D concave and convex wall tiles come in a matte or glossy finish. They’re designed by none other than musician Lenny Kravitz, which might explain the rock and roll glam vibe.

4 Natfuse/Reuse by Budri

Patricia Urquiola strikes again. These marble tiles are light and transparent. The pre-cut slabs and their offcuts are rendered into 3D surfaces for adorning walls, side tables and benches.
