Mud is mood: the product finds its origin and its inspiration in the land, this primordial formless cluster that slowly comes to life and becomes Creative Matter, which in turn creates emotions and influences the mood of people who come in contact with it.
Mud is Mood is an Italian brand of accessories and furniture. It was founded in Umbria by the architect and designer Cristina Daminato. At Mud is mood we aim to combine Product Design and craftmanship to trigger new dynamics in our area, Umbria. This land, source of our inspiration, is the place where we are deeply rooted, thanks to the use of traditional workforce and techniques. Our mission is to carefully respond to contemporary taste and needs, always keeping an eye on the future and on innovation. Mud is Mood products are linear and elegant objects with a functional soul: stackable, modular and customizable, shapes and colors can be trasformed at any time by the user.
Cristina was born in 1986. On January 2012 she graduated cum laude at Roma La Sapienza University gaining a Master Degree in Architecture. She has specialized in interior, industrial and product design at Castiglia Associati Studio.
In 2016, after a special meeting with the international artist and technologist Nicola Boccini, Cristina created her first collection of objects and the brand Mud is Mood, that combines design, art and craft.
During 2018 Cristina performed at Milano Design Week, as part of the group of self-produced designers selected by Source for the Lovely Waste event. On September 2018 Cristina took part at Bologna Design Week inside BDW Market in Bologna. In the same year she appeared in some online magazine and blogger articles, with her brand Mud is Mood. On 2018 Sistema Museo proposed her to exhibit and sell her products inside Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria bookshop in Perugia, in the same year Cristina starts a collaboration with a norway e-commerce call Monolocale.
Cristina continually develops object that combines aesthetic and function.
Mud is mood is a place of co-working, an atelier, a laboratory, a Design Studio. Manufacturing ideas doesn't only mean conceiving them, but concretely turn projects, studied and designed in detail, into Matter.
A place where different skills and abilities meet and where the combination of architecture, crafts and applied arts becomes reality.
