Primavera Grigio secured a win in the Finishes category at this year’s Archiproducts Design Awards. Designed by Barber & Osgerby for Mutina, the unglazed porcelain stoneware tiles present a modern twist on the natural world.
Showcasing irregularity through the use of coloured ceramic chips, the slabs each offer a unique look and varied texture. The coloured inserts are a subtle and contemporary nod to nature. The designers explain – “We found a way to capture the authenticity of a natural material by manufacturing imperfections on the surface rather than by reproducing a design”.
Primavera’s decorative surface is available in five colours – Bianco, Blu, Grigio, Negro, and Verde – each offering a contemporary and elegant look that is complemented by the matt finish. It is a highly effective range, incorporating elements of terrazzo and wood chip but offering an entirely different aesthetic.
The range comes in three sizes (1,200 by 2,400mm, 1,200 by 1,200mm, and 400 by 1,200mm) and a thickness of 6mm. It is suitable for use on floors, walls, and worktops both indoors and outside.
