EWE Studio collaborated with Nouvel Studio to produce the Magma light series. The process began with designing 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 totality differs, as a result giving unique characteristics to each one of the Magma ‘bubbles’.
The structure that holds the lighting fixture is custom made to fit each bubble and is made out of steel. The ethereal light reflections that give the golden tone the interior is generated by the hand hammered brass surface contained within the glass bubbles.
