A collaboration between London-based fabricator Dzek and Amsterdam-based studio Formafantasma, ExCinere is a collection of glossy tiles that use volcanic lava as a raw design material.

The glossy tones are derived from mixing and firing varying quantities, particle sizes and densities of volcanic matter, with the tiles available in four volcanic tone glazes.

The project is inspired by the impact of mass-tourism on the landscape and culture of Mount Etna and Sicily.
