MAGMA is a lamp entirely made with post-consumer recycled plastic, obtained from the dirty portion of door to door collection waste normally destined for the incinerator called PLASMIX .
From this material, the tuscan company REVET produce a heterogeneous plastic granule with an exclusive technique .
The plastic granule obtained is shaped into an organic form through a 3D extrusion process: MAGMA outside it appears in its raw form, apparently similar to a mineral material, while inside it is internally covered in precious gold leaf applied by hand .
Magma is the symbol of the importance of using recycled plastic as a new raw material, an alchemical process that reveals the precious and useful side of recycling.
Magma is a 3D printed lamp made from post-consumer recycled plastic, internally covered in gold leaf applied by hand.
