A Rhombus Inspires Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec’s Latest Tiles, Mosaics, and Reliefs for Mutina
The Bouroullec brothers know their geometry. For Mutina, the Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec studio has designed a trio called Rombini, as in rhombus—a diamond to less mathematical types. It provides a visual through-line between the stoneware field tiles, mosaics, and reliefs, all three available in five colors: gray, white, blue, green, and red. A mold embosses mini-diamonds across the 16-inch squares of Carré. The motif becomes a mosaic for the 10-by-11-inch sheets of Losange. Cut a diamond in half, meanwhile, and you get Triangle, its three-dimensional profile ideal as a ribbed treatment for walls.
