The Etnastone collection is named after the Sicilian volcano Mount Etna, a reference to the traditional craftsmanship in the lava stone and ceramics industries, found in the town of Caltagirone. With this project, Emmanuel Babled testifies once again to his bond with pure techniques that are only possible to find in a single place.
The Etnastone Chairs’ seats are made with pieces of lava, coloured with delicate enameling that gives a unique finish to the volcanic texture. The production process is fully handcrafted, and the palette of glazes with more than 40 colours allows a wide range of customisation possibilities.
This collection was created in a collaboration with the Italian company Made a Mano, who specialise in stone, tiles and other coatings, produced using traditional techniques.
