The study of rock formation served as the inspiration for the Iceberg stone chair. Due to its formation, the quartz utilized in the product is an extremely rare stone. Only one mineral creates this igneous rock. Its formation occurred in the Bahia region of northern Brazil more than a billion years ago due to a sudden movement of magma that reached the Earth’s surface and crystallized. The little quartz block that represents the tip of an iceberg has an irregular, primitive shape, and new shapes are added to it to form the Iceberg stone chair. When shaping the contours of the seat and the backrest, the rock astounds us with an outstanding vein design in contrast to the natural rustic surface.
Crystal coffee table, introduces the poetic force of nature to modern life, drawing inspiration from both the concept of Concretism and the history of rock formation. The quartz used on the Crystal is a very rare stone for its purity and the uniqueness of its formation. The stone formation’s dramatic geological shifts are referenced in the design’s use of varying heights and geometric shapes. Measurements of the minimalist design are 160cm x 80cm x37.5cm.
The concept behind the Pedrita lamp series was influenced by the studies of Brazilian marbles, quartzites, and quartz crystals, which are rare, exotic, natural stones that are discovered on Brazilian soil. To emphasize the inherent qualities of the materials, the brand worked from a minimalist perspective, embracing straight lines and straightforward shapes. Their colors, vein patterns, and translucency are indicative of glaciers, icebergs, flowing rivers and green forests. The name Pedrita, which refers to “valuable stone,” emphasizes the local natural resources. There are different models of translucent quartz table lights and various models of translucent quartz, green quartzite, and floor lamps. In addition to its different colors, various sizes are being produced.
