Cutting the stone
For each creation, the right block is extracted, chiefly by hand. This precious treasure deserves such attention !
Every piece is a jewel
Lava yields to no-one, but we’ve learnt to master it. In the Castelsarrasin workshop (South West of France), our craftsmen work closely with the material. Our numerically controlled machinery ensures precision, and we always finish our products by hand.
This exceptional shared expertise is behind worktops, washbasins, tables, tiles and more.
Lava in your hands
The master enameller’s touch
No limits when it comes to colour.
You simply have to see these master craftsmen at work. A fluid movement, in a single stroke, something you can only learn from many years’ experience.
With thousands of recipes and secrets, we can create the exact colour that’s required. Finding the right shade – whether from a piece of cloth, an object, a Pantone reference, or something else – sometimes needs perseverance, but always requires intuition.
And it always reveals itself in the end.
