Primavera

A series of unglazed porcelain tile designed by Barber & Osgerby for Mutina. Primavera is the contrast between the natural element and the artificial world, translated into porcelain. The designers have reproduced a slab that resembles a natural element with all its irregularities, perceptible to sight and touch, by throwing small colored ceramic inserts in a completely random way. This allows beautiful imperfections on the surface of the tiles for a unique and interesting texture.
