21 Jun A new collection ‘DIN’, designed by Konstantin Grcic with Mutina
DIN represents a complete new way of conceiving a modern mosaic. The collection is conceived in a strictly modular logic that allows to play with the elements and offers a wide scope of possible applications, from simple concepts to the most complex ones, demonstrating an almost unlimited flexibility.
DIN consists of 4 different tile sizes that follow a strict modular logic: the largest format is a 15×15 cm square tile; cutting it in half creates the next smaller size, and so on.
The 4 elements of the collection are available in a range of 8 colours: White, Black, Light Green, Dark Green, Light Blue, Dark Blue, Rose, Red. Each in two finishes: Matt and Glossy that allow for a total of 64 ceramic tiles. DIN support is created through pressing, inside moulds made with special plaster models. The pieces are first pressed individually and later handled manually with extreme care. To obtain the range of 8 colours with a matt finish and 8 with a glossy finish, it was necessary to work on 16 different formulas. Each glaze is applied evenly on the surface, using the traditional bell technique.
The four sizes are modular, with a joint of 2 mm. The possibility to combine several formats, textures and colours guarantees not only a great creative potential, but also that the tile pattern can be adapted to the dimension of a specific wall or floor . DIN also develops into the third dimension, offering a range of elements for angles and profiles that allow to create innovative architectural solutions and furnishing.
DIN will be available to order at the start of July and samples will be available to order mid-late July.
