“Sustainability is something that affects us all. If designers and manufacturers work closely together, we can contribute to a more circular economy and to the conservation of the planet.”
Valencian Alberto Sánchez and Eduardo Villalón founded MUT Design in 2010 and, in these almost 13 years, their studio has become one of the most internationally renowned Spanish studios thanks to pieces such as their ‘Náutica’ swing chair, designed for Expormim and which won a Red Dot Award, or the ‘Beetle’ panels, designed for Sancal and which are part of the permanent collection of the Centre National des Arts Plastiques (CNAP) in Paris. In addition, installations such as ‘Das Haus’, designed for IMM Cologne 2020, or their ‘Valencia Pavilion’, created for the Madrid Design Festival 2021, are proof of the quality of their designs, which aim to involve the user. Their latest project has been to reinvent, with two very different proposals, the bathroom concept for The Bathelier, the ideas laboratory of C·Bath, Cosentino's integral bathroom proposal.

It all started at the Salone, in Milan

Our approach to design is emotional
Sustainability is essential to us

Our inspiration is varied
There are no ugly colours...
THE BATHELIER: THE RESILIENT HOUSE
A spa-like space in which the brand’s materials become a blank canvas on which to project cladding and integrated features through a solution in the form of a spatial architecture system. An architecture that blends the natural and organic with the geometric and technological, the hand of nature and the hand of man to create interiors based on neutral surfaces.
We have always been attracted to interior design
A MEDITERRANEAN, ORGANIC AND OPEN HOUSE
The process is quite similar
The pandemic changed everything

Our two designs to The Bathelier
THE BATHELIER: ELLIPSE
A partitioning element that plays with the different levels of privacy in an open bathroom space formed by truncated cylindrical modules that facilitate the flow from the interior to the exterior and vice versa. In this project, MUT Design is inspired by the expressionism and organic architecture of Torres Blancas in Madrid. The curved, spiral and seashell shapes so often found in nature.
We couldn’t choose just one project
Our biggest challenge

“We want our objects to convey something, to evoke a memory, anything that provokes a reaction in the observer.”
