Déchirer

Déchirer is a series of large format through-body porcelain tiles designed by Patricia Urquiola. Déchirer is notable for its patterns and textures made possible through the technology used in production. The series won the 2009 Best of NeoCon Silver Award in the Hard Surface category. It also won the Elle Deco International Design Awards (EDIDA) in 2009 in the wall coverings category. The collection explores the expressive potential of ceramics, incorporating patterns and colors that are inspired by the nature and the consistency of concrete.

Déchirer – XL Format

Déchirer XL, designed by Patricia Urquiola for Mutina, is the next evolution of the popular porcelain tile collection Déchirer. Déchirer XL is an oversized, unglazed, rectified and brushed porcelain slab with patterns and textures pressed into the surface.

About Patricia Urquiola

Patricia Urquiola’s professional career began in Italy, influenced by figures such as Bruno Munari, the intellectual founding father of the Milan school. Patricia considers herself a Spaniard, or rather an Asturian of Basque descent. Urquiola trained at the Polytechnic Universities of Madrid and Milan. In Milan she worked with Vico Magistretti and Achille Castiglioni before opening her own studio there in 2001. She alternates product design projects for major international companies – from Alessi to B&B Italia, Moroso, De Padova, Rosenthal and Axor, to mention but a few – with architecture projects for private homes, hotels and showrooms. Patricia’s work has earned her numerous international awards: the Wallpaper Design Awards in 2006, Elle Decoration International Design Award, and Designer of the Year for the first time in 2003 and several times in the following years, as in 2009 with Mutina Déchirer collection. Her creations, including Déchirer, have been selected for ADI Design Index and The International Design Yearbook.
