De Natura Fossilium Furniture Collection Of Cooled Lava

If you’ve been following us lately, you’ve seen Formafantasma’s Monti Silvestri watch, made with materials extracted from the lava of the 2013 Etna eruption in Sicily. Here is a furniture collection that continues that theme. Here Formafantasma used basalt, an igneous rock that forms when basaltic lava cools quickly, and combined it with brass elements to make stools and tables in a row they call De Natura Fossilium. The rope is wrapped around the other materials not only to hold them together, but also to add another design detail. The simple shapes and minimalist lines emphasize the unusual material. This furniture collection will add a unique touch to any modern room!
