Numi marks the beginning of the collaboration between Mutina and the German designer Konstantin Grcic. For the first time, Grcic has to deal with the ceramic surface and presents a book about research and inspirations with a very strong appeal to contemporary art.

“Ceramic! Working at my very first collection for Mutina, I’ve come to value the beauty of this simple and ancient material. A lump of clay that becomes floor, coating. The idea of matter as something composed of so many units, is really fundamental.

A philosophical concept as much as a biological fact. The ceramic tile simply represents this: a small unit which, once multiplied, turns into something larger than the sum

of its parts.” Konstantin told us.
