Designed by Tokujin Yoshioka for Mutina
“For the Botanica collection, I have created a design that expresses the beauty of nature in different forms, as if I were painting a landscape. Senses are a fundamental element of my creative process. Not only material and visual ones, such as touch and sight, but also more “abstract” ones, such as the sense of smell. I am constantly looking for something that is defined and perceived by all the five senses.” - Tokujin Yoshioka
With Botanica, Tokujin Yoshioka expresses once again his deep fascination for the natural world, its different characteristics and the poetry of its forms, designing the first Mutina mosaic specially developed for floors. The collection features two elements inspired by nature, the names and the lines: Seed, in 14x15 cm format, and Flower, in 15x17 cm format, both with a thickness of 9 mm. The modules are sold exclusively on net – Seed in a 39,9x23,1 cm format and Flower in a 40,3x23,1 cm format – and are available in White and Grey colours, offered in a super glossy finish and a matt wax-coated one which is extremely pleasant to the touch, and are suitable for floors and walls. This makes it possible to give the surfaces continuity, in which the mosaic becomes more or less emphasised depending on the colour of the grout.
