Comments Off on Studio Formafantasma Creates Mind-Blowing Objects from Mt. Etna’s Volcanic Lava

Studio Formafantasma is more focused on the materials that go into their work than the form or function it will ultimately take. This has led to projects that make use of organic resins in place of plastics , hand-crafted leather , and now basaltic lava taken from two of the last active volcanoes in Europe. The De Natura Fossilium line includes beautifully carved clocks, tables, stools, glasses, tableware, and textiles, some of which are even made from a lava-based glass.
