The Art of Natural Lava
introducing a range of versatile and contemporary products that highlight the distinctive natural characteristics of lava stone, with a palette of glazes as well as forward-looking designs for three-dimensional tiles and elements to amplify its creative uses.
Artisan-crafted at our Vesuvius workshop
Innovative glazes, combining glass particles with a finer blend of minerals for a sheer finish, accentuate the flecked and dappled surface of the stone, in chromatic plays possible only with lava
Ranieri, the world’s premier laboratory of experimentation with lava, collaborates with architects, designers, project managers, and other professionals to allow them to imagine new cutting-edge designs in lava exploring fresh territories of cut, color, and form, with a mastery of the volcanic stone, and a wider palette of Vietri-style glazes than is possible with other materials — an unrivaled ability with lava that’s made Ranieri the choice for extraordinary projects for the artist Olafur Eliasson, the Four Seasons Miami, Massimo Bottura’s Ristorante Francescana, and many others.
