Our lava stone surfaces add a visual twist to the lighting design

Working side by side with Brossier Saderne for the international luxury hospitality company Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, on the project of the bespoke lava stone table lamps.

Lighting is an essential part of the interior decor.
The lamp itself can be that accent element to add a distinguished note to the environment, while the lighting function comes to be an essential part of the decoration.
Through the details of the shapes, textures matching, color schemes, the lamp as a design product can be a relevant key piece to enhance the whole ambiance.

The glazed lava stone lamp

The lamp, designed by Paris-based architect Joseph Dirand, revokes the golden age of the twenties while being contemporary and elegant.

Our lava stone product is all made-to-measure on the clients demand, from the shape to the custom colors and finishes.
We loved the project and this bespoke lava stone glazed base, embellished by a craquelé finish which adds a special classy touch to the “age of the twenties” style.

Craquelé: a distinctive note of glazed lava stone

Why craquelé?

Craquelé, or craquelure, is a french definition acquired from history of art, to point out the fine pattern of dense “cracking” formed on the surface of ancient paintings.
On lava stone glazed surfaces, being a simply a physical consequence of glazing process, craquelé is an aesthetic value of enameled lava stone products and tiles.
Craquelé intensity is variable, as it is a natural consequence of high temperatures stone glazing with crystalline colors.
This is distinctive and so much appreciated by lava stone lovers.
