We introduce 

MAGMA 04 ® : THE NEW LIQUID STONE

A liquid stone-like material for designers, artists and architects to open their possibilities when designing.

 

WHAT IS MAGMA 04®?

MAGMA 04 ® is a liquid composite formula that defies the nature of stone. It imitates the basaltic stone, best known as the "lava stone" in appearance & texture, but its process of obtaining and transforming, as well as its physical and chemical characteristics allows new applications. The formula is conceived in a semi-liquid state and transformed into a solid state allowing designers to create organic forms. The composite is casted in a mold and dries in less than an hour, making production time faster than the natural stone. Finishing and details are handcrafted by artisans, creating unique products. 

Other production processes include water jet cutting, chainsaw, routing and perforation with tungsten or diamond tip. 

Applications of MAGMA 04 ® include interiors and exterior tiles, jewerly design, fashion design, furniture, products, accesories and others to discover. 

Colors and textures, can be customized resulting in unique products. 

MAMGA 04® is a material developed by C37 Studio.

looks like stone.

Its color, texture and porosity looks and feels the same as lava stone. 
Tone and texture can be personalized depending on the project's needs.

liquid

malleable into organic shapes.

It's original state is liquid, allowing the material to transform into aesthetically interesting shapes difficult to achieve with stone and other materials.

 

 

 




LIGHTer

LIGHTer than stone.

It is 20% lighter than basaltic stone.
It can also reach lower thickness without breaking, reducing the weight and opening opportunities for new applications.

 

 

 



COMPATIBLE

ADHERENT WITH OTHER MATERIALS.

It's high adhesion allows it to connect with other rigid or elastic materials, generating new material opportunities and uses.

 
 
 

 

CHOOSING MAGMa 04 ®

Texture

MAGMA 04 ® is customized depending on design needs. It's texture can have HIGH POROSITY or LOW POROSITY, always keeping the aesthetic of stone.

Low porosity has a smooth surface.
*Surfaces may be polished to obtain a shiny effect.

Color

MAGMA MAGMA 04 ®  comes in 4 monochromatic tones: Light, Medium and Dark and Black. New colors can be experimented and develped for you.

 
 

*Every tone and texture is available in Glossy and Matte finish.

finish

Final finishes can be added to give MAGMA 04® a different look. Some examples are: glaze and paint.

If you want a special color or details embedded inside the formula (like colored - precious stones or other materials) you can consult it with the R&D team to create an exclusive version of MAGMA 04 ®
