mexico’s wealth and history emanate from the pores of its volcanic rocks, a material that transmits strength and keeps untold local stories. mexican-based peca studio has mastered the art of polishing and molding it into inviting objects, just like the lava dining table — a puzzle of hand-cut pieces that have been craftily assembled into a single tabletop.

for this collection, caterina moretti — head designer and studio director of peca —  has conceived the lava dining table in such a way for it to be flexible in terms of function and location. it can be used for outdoor occasions (family meals, invitations etc…) or be included in the interior space of a home, where it would find its place in a dining room and kitchen space.
