Mews

Mews is a series of through-body porcelain tiles designed by renowned industrial designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby for Mutina. The Mews collection is strongly influenced by the city of London where both Barber & Osgerby live and work. It is inspired by the landscape, the history and the personality of the British capital, and by the huge variety of textures characterizing its infrastructures, such as bricks, wooden floors and irregular geometrical patterns. The apparently random and intentionally inaccurate effect is due to the color and compositional freedom obtained by extensive research and experimentation on color and combinations. The wide color range of the collection adds depth and movement to the tiled surface making it rich and remarkable. The collection has been designed with both contemporary and traditional use in mind. The variety of neutral tones allows the tiles to be a focal point or a backdrop in any interior scheme.

    Mews is the winner of three prestigious awards:

  • Wallpaper Design Award 2014 (Wallpaper Magazine)
  • EDIDA 2014 (Elle Decoration International Design Award – Elle Decoration Network)
  • Chicago Athenaeum Good Design Award 2014

About Barber & Osgerby

Barber and Osgerby began their collaboration in 1996, after having obtained a master’s degree in architecture at the Royal College of Art in London. Their early works were created by bending and forming sheets of material, and were influenced by the white paper they used to make small models while they were still studying architecture. The first extensive monography devoted to them was published by Rizzoli New York in 2011. They have developed collections for major international companies including Cappellini, B & B Italia, Flos, Vitra and Knoll and their works are part of permanent collections in museums around the world, such as the V&A and the Design Museum in London, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Art Institute in Chicago.

ABSORPTION

Low

This material is virtually non-porous. No sealer is required and it is less likely to stain.

ACID SENSITIVITY

Moderate

This material is moderately sensitive to acids. Generally, acid etching will be less visible on lighter stones and honed surfaces. The finish will patina over time. If acid etching is a concern, select a minimally sensitive material.

FREEZE-THAW
