Be Tempted by Onza, The New Collection From MUT

Onza is a new tile collection that strikes a balance between formal minimalism and a playful aesthetic, inspired by the design of chocolate blocks.

MUT Design has surprised the ceramic sector with the playful and quirky Onza tile collection. Named after the squares in which chocolate blocks are divided into, and aesthetically inspired by the same design, The Onza tiles are composed of just three ceramic pieces with invisible joints, which allows for infinite compositions when assembled.

Inspired by chocolate bars not just in visual appeal but also in texture, production processes and how the pieces melt down with heat, the Onza tiles are both the most traditionally minimalist, and conceptually forward thinking design devised MUT studio up to now.

Highly modular, it’s easy to both combine repeating one of the pieces and mixing up the design with the three available options. Each of the Onza tiles is essentially missing a square, which means that funky customization id de rigueur when it comes to combining them.

Developed through careful and rigorous innovative methods, Onza is a versatile and fun collection, suitable for any spaces, yet retains a distinguished design through its employment of minimalism. The range comes in three colours: Grey, Terracotta and White Ceramic, design to evoke different sensations amongst the viewer.
