THE NEW LIQUID STONE


MATERIAL INNOVATION CREATES POSSIBILITIES FOR THE CREATIVE MINDS.

We introduce MAGMA 04, a liquid stone-like material for designers, artists and architects to open their possibilities when designing.

WHAT IS MAGMA?

A liquid composite that defies the nature of stone.

MAGMA imitates 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, fashion, furniture, products, accesories and others to discover. 

Colors and textures, can be customized resulting in unique products.The formula of Magma 04 can change depending on the project's need, developing specific applications.

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 complex and organic forms that are almost impossible to obtain with volcanic stone, reducing production time and material waste.

 

 

 




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

Texture

MAGMA can be customized depending on the design needs. Texture can be porous, or smooth, always keeping the aesthetic of stone.

Low porosity has a smooth surface, recommended for objects used in the kitchen. Surfaces may be polished to obtain a shiny effect.

Color

MAGMA 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.
