Meet the Designer: Nathalie Du Pasquier

About Nathalie Du Pasquier

Nathalie Du Pasquier was born in Bordeaux in 1957 and has lived in Milano since 1979. During the eighties, she has worked as a designer, creating textiles and mostly surfaces, and was a founding member of Memphis. In 1987 painting became her main activity and ever since her practice is constantly developing in new and unexpected directions. Her work has been featured in solo exhibitions at Kunsthalle Wien, International Center of Graphic Arts in Ljubljana, Galerie Fuer Zeitgenoessische Kunst in Leipzig, Apalazzo Gallery in Brescia, Pace Gallery in Seoul, and at Anton Kern Gallery in New York.

Nathalie Du Pasquier joined the Mutina team in 2019 with the realization of BRIC, a site-specific installation exhibited on the occasion of MUT 4. This art exhibition of sculptures inspired a collaboration between Nathalie and Mutina to design the Brac collection and the Margherita Collection.  

Brac reinterprets the building brick by incorporating negative space, and adding emotional unpredictability by playing with light, color and sound. Brac has a range of five colors and two finishes.

Matonnelle Margherita centers around a dual concept: simple minimalist style, and the courageous creativity of color.  The graphics combine with each other for the creation of endless different layouts always novel and innovative.   This collection is suitable for tiling entire surfaces on both floors and walls or for creative interesting decorative details in any home, such as paneling effects, skirting, and door frames. 

Each glazed porcelain stoneware tile is a unique, bright, and vibrant invitation to design creatively, freely, and with an abundance of personal expression. 

“After many years, the encounter with Mutina allowed me to work on a design project again. I had forgotten how funny that could be. Mutina has the size that I like, we talk to each other and decide in the moment, then we go in the trattoria.” -Nathalie Du Pasquier
