Etnastone Dining Table
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.
