Dubbed “Remolten N°1: Revolution Series,” the stools are made from natural Chilean volcanic lava rock. This collection evokes primitive furniture of mankind revolution in modern context. Volcanic rocks have been crushed and re-melted to form unique shapes for the stoneware series. Each item in the lava rock furniture collection is one-of-a-kind and hundred percent handmade.
To create the lava rock furniture, volcanic rocks have been crushed and re-melted to form unique shapes for the stoneware series. Each item in the lava rock furniture lineup is one-of-a-kind and 100-percent handmade.
This collection features three different stool designs, which are created by varying heating and cooling temperatures during the crafting process. Trapelco stool has a smooth appearance, Mahuanco stool features ‘dripping lava’ design, and Quitralco stool boasts rough textural finish. Each unit is hand-crafted directly with volcanic lava to come out as a unique piece for modern homes.
The lava rock furniture collection can be used indoors or outdoors as a part of modern furnishings. This latest collection is an outcome of second collaboration with New York Gallery Friedman Benda. The first pieces of Remolten N°1: Revolution Series will be showcased at Salon: Art + Design from November 10-14 and at Design Miami from November 30 to December 4, 2016.
