In a myriad of formats and sizes, the Pyrolave product enjoys the unique properties of Volvic lava's strength, versatility of applications, and beauty of enamel glazes. Pyrolave is shaped and finished to the size and thickness dimensions required with CNC technology, enabling the realisation of highly creative designs and fluid shapes to be achieved. Work top surfaces can incorporate drainage boards, set-down wet areas, fully concealed induction cooking arenas, hot and cold stone technology, and bespoke sinks in glazed lava stone. Pyrolave's strength and stability enables the creation of 'massive' formats honed out from monolithic blocks of solid stone to form large signature pieces such as vanity and sink basins. Advanced CNC technology means that a designer's drawing can be realised in the creation of a bespoke massive format piece.
In designing with Pyrolave, it is important to keep in mind the size to weight ratio of this uniquely dense, and therefore heavy material. See the table below for details.
