Architects and designers have easily identified the extreme strength of enamelled lava, choosing it without hesitation for projects where resistance to frost, weather and UV are key. In short, the ability to withstand anything, making Pyrolave a trailblazer with its popularity for external uses. Days go by under London’s rainy skies, Dubai’s merciless sun, or Moscow’s biting cold, and the lava remains completely unmoved. You’ll chiefly find it gracing the facades of office buildings, bars, hotels and restaurants.

Facades and external: the world’s first contact with your project. When it comes to design, colour is one of the top criteria for choosing enamelled lava, with the option of high-precision custom colouring, in addition to an existing catalogue of 6000 colour references.
To make selection easier, given the vast number of colours available, we’ve put together a core collection: enamels of all styles, from the strictly traditional to the latest designer trends, but always at the height of luxury, enhanced by our master enamellers.
Your custom colour:
Do you have a colour in mind for your creation? Send it to us in any form you like, as a piece of cloth or a Pantone reference number, and we’ll find the recipe with the perfect blend of enamels to ensure your hotel, bar or restaurant proudly wears your project’s colours. Each custom colour is a challenge, and we never miss the mark.
Different crazing effects and finishes:
The fine cracks on the surface of the tile are the material’s signature. The design is unpredictable! As for the finish of the lava, once decorated with the enamel, this can be matt or glossy. In the most contemporary architectural projects, the choice of matt often wins out, but the mechanical properties remain the same in both cases.
Raw lava as a facing material:
Because of its extremely tough character, lava has always been a favoured material in high-prestige constructions. It can therefore be found in the oldest buildings and monuments, unenamelled, with its characteristic grey colour. Similarly, natural lava tiles can be used to add the brute strength of lava to your construction project.
