Puzzle is a collection for Mutina, designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby. Puzzle is a series of glazed porcelain stoneware tiles that is a mixture of block colors and multi-colored graphic patterns. The idea behind the collection is to design the entire room, to provide communication between architectural and space elements placed in different parts of the space, and drawing a continuous line through color declinations of the collection. The versatility of the block colors and graphic patterns offers endless possibilities for the space, combining walls and floors, shaping areas with frames and graphic flooring, aiming to provide rhythm and attitude. Tile can be installed randomly or well-ordered, for infinite combinations.
"Puzzle hinges on the possibility to organize layouts and patterns yourself. Individuality and the ability to be able to personalize your own space is increasingly important and this collection allows the user unlimited configurations," Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby
About Barber & Osgerby: Barber and Osgerby opened their London studio in 1996, having graduated from the Royal College of Art in London. Their multidisciplinary approach pushed the boundaries of industrial design, architecture and art. Their work includes collections for Knoll, Vitra, B & B Italia, Cappellini, Venini and Flos, limited edition pieces and commissions such as the London 2012 Olympic Torch and the £2 coin designed for the Royal Mint. The first extensive monograph on the pair was published by Rizzoli New York in 2011. They are both Royal Designers for Industry (RDI) and Honorary Doctors of Art. Their work is included in the permanent collections of museums around the world, such as the V&A and Design Museum in London, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and Chicago's Art Institute.

Installation + Maintenance
Tiles can be installed using standard installation methods for thinset adhesives. A grout joint of 3/16" or greater is recommended. Use high quality adhesive from manufacturers such as Laticrete and Mapei, following manufacturers’ recommendations, depending on conditions. Clean with a neutral detergent.
When using the Puzzle field tile and the specific patterns together in an installation please note the field tile may have inherent color variation from the patterned tiles. This is due to the artisanal production and glazing process on the patterned tiles.
