first presented at the 2015 CEVISAMA trade fair in valencia, spanish studio MUT design has launched a range of ceramic tiles that generate unexpected reflections. the product – titled ‘scales’ – is a partnership between MUT and harmony, a brand belonging to peronda –  a company who has been producing ceramic ware for over than a half century.

with ‘scales’ MUT design seeks to imitate the vibrating movement transmitted by the sheeny skin of fish as they ripple under water. using neon tones along the two rear sides of the white smooth surface, the individual pieces naturally irradiate colorful sparkles over adjacent tiles. manufactured in spain, the 12×12 centimeter tiles can be arranged in multiple compositions. the ceramic body comprises a glazed white surface, while the two sides of each tile are available in eight different color schemes.
