The Domesticated Architecture Collection

View all 17 Photos

Translating architecture into everyday objects.

Based in Barcelona, Murmull is the brainchild of designers Xenia Dikalo Eduard Mondejar, who also previously co-founded the Matrimoni studio. The Murmull collection displays a passion for simplicity and purity of form, as well as a love of architecture. Aptly titled “Domesticated Architecture”, the collection features everyday items that take inspiration from architectural elements. Modern design and minimalism define the pieces, along with the perfect balance between clean lines, refined volumes, and geometric patterns. A limited chromatic palette maintains the collection’s serene character, while the choice of materials and manufacturing processes marries tradition and innovation.

Capturing the essence of the object and the purity of the shape, each product references a certain architectural detail. For example, the Step Stool reminds of arch structures thanks to its curved base, while the Ceramic Pot takes inspiration from industrial brick chimneys. The Base design gives a nod to ceramic cladding and doubles as tray and wall decoration. Another wall décor element, the Graphic Work reinterprets details of modern architecture as art, with customization options also available. Finally, the Carrier Bag series boasts a polypropylene material that looks like a glass block or textured window pattern. All the designs come in different colors and finishes, with some also available in different shapes and sizes. Photographs© Murmull.
