Altar by Sabine Marcelis

Altar by Sabine Marcelis

16 January, 2018

Wallpaper Magazine asked Sabine Marcelis to pair up with lava stone brand Made A Mano to design an object for the ‘Holy handmade’ exhibition during the Salone del Mobile in Milan 2017.

Pushing the limits of lava stone production processes, the Altar is a grand gesture. The largest possible slab of glazed lava stone produceable by Made a Mano seems to float above the ground effortlessly, held in place by an almost invisible glass box.

A heavy iconic object where materials are tested and applied in ways which defy common use and expectation; A pure focus and exploitation on materiality and production process; Glass is used as the structural base, where the Lavastone -more commonly produced as smaller tiles becomes an extra large table surface.
