Inspired by a visit to the entomology rooms of a natural science museum, Mut Studio designed these sound-absorbing panels to evoke the image of a beetle. But while the museum’s insect displays were “terrifying”, Mut Studio designed their own beetles to be beautiful and harmless. By helping to resolve the uncomfortable problem of background noise, this product aims to find the right balance between sound dissipation and decoration. Sancal have created 12 variants of the product by configuring the six panels of each beetle in different ways. The beetles’ stands are made of oak and can be tinted in a range of colours.
Block is a collection with endless possible combinations, but that initially includes two sofas, a three and a one seater sofas, designed by the well known Valencia based studio MUT Design that has successfully proofed, once again, their chameleonic design abilities to create unique products. In their first collaboration with Missana, MUT Design has managed to bring to live a collection of very versatile, exclusive and unique pieces, a collection of elegant, fun and colourful sofas.
The table from a waterfall … Dúplex is the first collection by Sancal with the Valencian studio Mut: a small range of occasional tables that have been inspired by the architecture of Mies van der Rohe and Frank Lloyd Wright. The play on architecture reaches its climax when different tables of differing heights are placed over one another. But even without a partner, each table boasts two “floors” which can be used to display all manner of objects. The metallic structures are lacquered and the marine plywood tops are veneered with ash. The upper trays are optional and can be used on various sized tables.
STUDDED is the new range of signature wall tiles included in the STRUCTURES line by Peronda Fashion Lab. Inspired by the twinkling light of constellations, this 32x90 cm rectified wall tile features a series of repeated elements combined in a series of reliefs and bas-reliefs that play with light and shadow to generate a sense of movement and depth. Client: Harmony Peronda Group / Year: 2016 / Design by Alberto Sánchez.
FLOAT breaks with the rigidity prevailing in modern kitchens: every piece is a detached and can be integrated in open spaces, so users are no longer forced to stare at the wall while cooking. FLOAT is a kitchen imbued with sensitivity, but highly functional. Its rational, but at the same time it possesses the beauty and sobriety of a unique artwork. Discreet and balanced, it seeks durability and timelessness far from what’s trendy or conventional. Client: Miras Editions / Year: from 2014 / Design by Alberto Sánchez.
NUC is a mosaic designed by the MUT studio for the top-of-the-range décor brand Harmony by Peronda. NUC by MUT features mesh-mounted mosaics formed by simple 4.5 cm glass tesserae inspired by the Gestalt Principles, which explain the origin of perceptions in accordance with the stimuli received. This new design in signature wall tiles is therefore conceived as a product that confers equal importance on all its elements, which in this case include the joints, converted into a focal point.
The Twins collection is composed of two armchairs born under the same premises but with their own personality and unique characteristics, so they can work perfectly together or separately. They are the result of a unique creative process that pursuits comfort through new technical fabrics suitable for outdoor use, although they can be moved indoors thanks to their attractive colours. Client: Expormim / Year: from 2015 to 2017 / Design by Alberto Sánchez.
Nautica is a hanging seat that pays homage to one of the first pieces created by Expormim in the 70s while recovering and rethinking the use of rattan. We wanted to evoke the contrasts of nature by replicating in some way the reflection of sun rays on the ocean waves. Thanks to its unique design, Nautica has already become a modern icon. Client: Expormim / Year: 2012 / Design by Alberto Sánchez.
Inspired by chocolate bars, this collection is made up of three tile models that can be combined to create endless compositions, using all three or just one of them. Onza is a minimalist and conceptual design, easy to adapt to any kind of environment thanks to its modularity and different finishes. Client: Harmony - Peronda Group Year: 2015 Design by Alberto Sánchez
Scales seeks to reproduce the vibrancy and dynamism of a fish’s iridescent skin as each wave washes over it. With Scales, we focused once again on creating a simple yet radically different design able to dress up walls in a stylish fun-filled way. Inspired again by nature, but this time by the scales that give fish their reflective capacity, the attraction of these ceramic tiles is their capacity to make light, shade and colour interplay. Client: Harmony Peronda Group / Year: 2014 / Design by Alberto Sánchez.
