Magma is the union of two souls craft very different from each other but connected by their passion for the rough elements and the desire of distorting them by their common use to reshape and rethink them with combinations and craftsmanship.
Caterina Martinelli and Gaia Guarnieri convert matters to make jewelry and lighting characterized by valued and innovative design.
Caterina, graduate in “Belle Arti”, now is a graphic and web designer in her spare time. With Magma she has the opportunity to implement her pictorial and sculptural vision of the world.
Gaia, graduate in Psychology and in possession of a diploma like a Sommelier, in the university years discovers and cultivate a passion for the planning of lighting and design object that today comes alive in Magma’s creations.
Magma Laboratory in Bologna is a neo-association founded in 2014: from the direct experience with the different materials that are worked in the laboratory arise the idea to use them to educate a new approach to waste products.
The key objective of the association is to promote the idea that garbage has resources to recover and reassemble to reinvent their and give it a new meaning and artistic value.
