Etnastone Dining Table

2016

Numbered Edition

Etnastone comes from Mount Etna, the volcano in Sicily, where lava blocks are extracted to create the tables that make up the collection. This is a direct reference to the lava stone and ceramic industry, a tradition at Caltagirone, a collection that once again witnesses the bond and the interest Emmanuel Babled has in working with crafts techniques that are only possible to find in a single place in the world.

The tables are shaped by the union of different pieces of lava, which are then delicately enamelled to give a unique finish to the volcanic texture. The design concept is based on the experimentation of puzzle compositions, a singularity that together with the manual manufacturing process and a palette of glazes composed of more than 40 colours, gives endless customization possibilities to the pieces.
The Etnastone collection was created in collaboration with the Italian company Made a Mano, who specialise in stone, tiles and other coatings produced using traditional techniques.
