Phenomenon Tile Collection

Designer/Artist: Tokujin Yoshioka
Brand: Mutina

Phenomenon stems from the desire to incorporate natural phenomena and the laws of nature into a contemporary design project, not simply for reproducing their aspect but to evoke an emotion. The collection reminds of different expressions of natural patterns such as honeycombs, snowflakes, sticks of ice, plant cells, evoking memories of natural sceneries and individual experiences of the natural world.

With the new edition of Phenomenon, the range is enriched with 3 new colors – Blu, Rosa and Verde – which is offered on all the available elements: Honeycomb A, Honeycomb B, Rock, Air, Wind, Rain A, Rain B and Rain C. The range also includes the new Phenomenon Glossy, the Honeycomb B, Rock and Rain A modules have been chosen to experiment the glossy finish for the first time, featuring Bianco, Nero, Oro and Argento shades. The extremely small size of the tesserae has made it necessary to set up a new production process that combines industrial and craft approaches with the objective of making the finish stand out as much as possible.
