endless possibilities with THE NEW LIQUID STONE.
Through the Research and Development of MAGMA® formula, C37 gave the opportunity to 16 designers to be part of the Personal Interpretations collection, inspired by the possibilities of the material.
"Personal Interpretations" is the result of an exercise to unite, reinterpret and imagine the “unimaginable” with the new liquid stone. The collection was exhibited in Milan Design Week and other international venues.

new material by c37 : MAGMA® the new liquid stone.
Through the C37 R&D Methodology, MAGMA® was developed. It is the first material developed by C37;
A liquid formula that defies the nature of stone.
It mimics Basaltic stone, better known as "lava stone" and it emulates it in appearance & texture. Its origin and manufacturing process, as well as its physical and chemical characteristics allow new applications that can't be obtained with natural stone. The formula is conceived in a semi-liquid state and transformed into solid state.
MAGMA® looks and feels identically like basaltic stone.
Its synthetic formula allows products to be in contact with water, avoiding filtration of liquid and contamination, making it the perfect material for vases.
Its original state is liquid, which allows organic shapes through casting.
MAGMA® is waterproof which makes it a perfect material for vases.
A Formula developed for dish-ware and counter top use.
It's consistency is semi-liquid, allowing objects to be dipped in it.
