THE NEW VOLCANIC STONE

Having few material options in the market

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

WHAT IS MAGMA?

A organic and inorganic compound base that defies the nature of volcanic stone.

MAGMA imitates the volcanic stone in appearance & texture, but its process of obtaining and transforming, as well as its physical and chemical characteristics allows new applications. Designers can choose the color and texture of MAGMA, resulting in a personalized material for developing unique products.

The formula is conceived in a liquid state and transformed into a solid state by casting, allowing designers to create organic forms made out of a mold, or even create intersected plane designs by cutting them from a sheet (like if it was wood).

looks like stone.

Its color, texture and porosity match the volcanic stone. 
MAGMA comes in 3 different tones (light, medium and dark). 
Tones and porosity can be personalized depending on the client's needs.

malleable into organic shapes.

It's original state is liquid, allowing the material to transform into complex and organic forms when hardened. Organic shapes are almost impossible to obtain with volcanic stone. If desired it would take a long time to produce by craftsmen and material would be wasted.

 

 

 




 

LIGHTer than stone.

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

 

 

 





 

compatible with other materials.

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