Mud Australia Celebrates 25 Years with Launch of All-Matte Finish

Acclaimed handmade porcelain brand Mud Australia is celebrating 25 years of making with the introduction of an all-matte finish during Salone de Mobile, their first-ever debut at the show. They partnered with Calico Wallpaper and Ladies & Gentlemen Studio to create an installation, Still / Life, that provides an interactive experience exposing the senses to what lies between stillness and life. The handmade crafts of Calico Wallpaper and Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, along with nature-inspired colors and shapes, paired nicely with the porcelain ceramics of Mud Australia and their timeless silhouettes and organic calmness.

Mud primarily showcased their new series of matte porcelain that offers a more durable finish for commercial use and features an earthy aesthetic through a palette of ink, sand, steel, citrus and milk. The new all-matte finish interplays beautifully with Mud’s minimal aesthetic to showoff the timeless design and functionality of their pieces.

“We’re thrilled to make our first-ever appearance during the coveted Salone del Mobile alongside the talented creative minds of Calico Wallpaper and Ladies & Gentlemen Studios,” said Shelley Simpson, Founder. “As a craft-based business, we’ve always had an appreciation for collaboration and design, and we couldn’t think of a better environment or better partners to make our debut in Milan, and to commemorate our 25th anniversary.”
