Stack the Odds

A sculptural take on tiles, produced in partnership with Mutina.

A tiled kitchen wall or bathroom floor appeals because of its visual regularity; when locked together just so, the ceramic blocks create huge planes of ordered geometry. But some tiles have the capacity to exist and be displayed as design objects in their own right—like those in the collections created by a raft of international artists and designers for the Italian tile makers Mutina.

Inspired by the abstract sculptures of mid-century pioneers such as the American David Smith and Belgian Georges Vantongerloo, Kinfolk’s creative team explore some of the striking ways in which leftover tiles can assume a complex 3D form.

This post is produced in partnership with Mutina.
