EWE Studio collaborated with Nouvel Limited to produce the special golden edition of Magma lighting sculptures for Design Miami/ Basel. The process began with creating molds varying in size and scale, hand carved in volcanic stone by local stonemasons.
The volcanic stone was chosen for the molds as it is not affected by the heat of the blown glass, due to its origin. Being an artisanal process, the shape, thickness and tonality differs, as a result giving unique characteristics to each one of the Magma ‘bubbles’.
