Overview: The ONYX sofa is a 3-metre long seat made of carbon fiber and Volvic volcanic lava stone. It is the first in a line of made to measure furniture.
Separated by means of a sharp straight cut, Volvic stone has spent thousands of years filtering the water for its aquifer, before being hand carved and married to hi-tech carbon fibre with its very structured and technical texture; its shapes precisely adjusted to the volcanic stone.
The ONYX sofa is the illustration of a series of unique pieces of furniture, made to measure, to suit the choice, origin and personality of the customer, but which always respects a common idea : the union, via a pronounced clear cut, between hyper-technological materials – carbon fibre, glass fibre, aluminium,…- and raw and natural materials – rock, wood, stone.
