Lava stone, metal and colorful resin join forces in a very marble-like furniture series
French designer Victoria Wilmotte tackles design like a sculptor, carving and molding materials to the desired shape. Her fascination with geometry and texture are pervasive in the recent Magma Series. Inspired by the fiery, volcanic substance, the surface of each object recreates the marbled effect of flowing lava. But instead of molten lava and the cooling crust of lava rock, metal and paint decorate the collection of tables, stools, benches and candle holders (that are sprouting from real lava rock). Magma was designed for the Torri Gallery in Paris and displayed at PAD! Pavillon Art Design last spring.
