Handmade from natural stone, this strikingly simple pendant light captures the beautiful features of grey volcanic rock. Named after Japan’s largest active volcano – Mount Aso – the basalt lava pendant lamp keeps its original grey color captured in a timeless shape. The Aso San basalt lava pendant lamp was imagined by German designer Daniel Stoller and hand-chiseled until the final shape was obtained. The opulence of this splendid material was imprinted on the works of the artist, capturing a moment in time when lava formed that exact pattern displayed by each piece of light. Check out how it’s made from a basalt lava block – just scroll to the end of this post and you will see how natural material is manipulated to be suited for modern living environments. Although it looks heavy and imposing, the lamp seen on StilSucht is actually quite lightweight and successfully adorns a contemporary space.
