Mattonelle Margherita — unique, vibrant & bold
Mutina has worked with French designer Nathalie du Pasquier to create a playful, one-of-a-kind range of vivid glazed porcelain stoneware. Centring around the dual concept of simple minimalist style and the courageous creativity of colour, this range is ideal for those who like to experiment. Careful research was undertaken to identify the most reactive glazes, to ensure the bright, vibrant finish to the satin-effect surface of each tile.
Endless combinations — always novel & innovative .
The range offers 41 different patterns, designed by hand. These graphics can be combined with each other, allowing for the creation of endless different layouts, ranging from simple minimalist style to those of a more audacious nature. Mattonelle Margherita is suitable for tiling entire surfaces, or for adding creative accents on door frames, panelling or skirting.
About the designer: Nathalie du Pasquier

A founding member of the Memphis Group, her early body of work focused on textiles, furniture and 'decorated surfaces'.

The Domus team gets creative in the studio
Here at Domus, we love the individuality of the Mattonelle Margherita patterned tiles but felt we had to make the range more accessible for our audience. To demonstrate how this diverse range can be used as subtle accents, to bring a room to life, we set up a photoshoot underneath our Clerkenwell showroom.
