With Casa Mutina, the company gets closer to the nerve centres of design and comes into direct contact with specialists in the field. It is a living space animated by a series of meetings, special events and talks, which aim to involve the company’s target customers in a new and continuous way.
Casa Mutina is located at number 1A via Cernaia, in the Brera district, which is not only one of Milan’s more characteristic historical districts and in the very centre of the city, but also a privileged hub for the world of art and design.
Studio Urquiola designs Mutina’s first showroom in Milan where it aims to make the product become the central focus inside a real home.
The architecture involves creating a boiserie that redesigns the different functions of the typical rooms in an apartment: entrance, study, bathroom, kitchen and living room. The tactile aspect of the tiles on the floor and wall (up to a height of 240 cm) creates a pleasant contrast with the texture of the ceiling. It is designed to create an intimate and familiar perception of the space making it very different from a conventional showroom.
The wooden walkway naturally guides the visitor through the different rooms as they unfold. At the same time, each room is defined by a texture that marks out and defines its specific function.
The floating floor and the boiserie break away from the existing structure of the apartment in which cleanliness, clarity and tidiness are the central concept throughout. The design is completed by the choice of floor tiles that are not attached to the wall and thus resemble rugs, and the pinkish unfinished walls above the boiserie, which reflect the rigour in all the rooms.
