Tierras is a series comprised of colored-body porcelain tile designed by renowned Spanish architect & designer Patricia Urquiola for Mutina. The Tierras collection is inspired by the concept of sedimentation and traditional Mediterranean craftsmanship. The base of the field tile is a solid black color, comprised of recycled ceramics. Eight different varieties of chromatically compatible lava, terracotta and clay are mixed and deposited on the black base to create the color palette in this series, resulting in saturated and earthy tones. This production process combines the latest in technological innovation with original craft techniques for a refined balance of contemporary and artisanal styles.
