Happy Tuesday to all our readers all over the earth. Today we’re giving you the opportunity to get acquainted with Made a Mano, an amazing company, which produces a variety of high end ceramics such as tiles, countertops, sinks, bathtubs and a range of living items that combine traditional handicraft with modern production techniques. If you haven’t heard or seen anything about it, it’s a shame, and you should check it as fast as possible.
Made a Mano was founded in 2001. The owner, NanaKi Bonfils, find inspiration from many corners of the globe fusing these influences with Scandinavian style, colour and glazing.
The most exclusive Made a Mano range is made using lava stone from Mount Etna and Vesuvio. The raw and extremely resilient lava stone is transformed into long lasting beauty.
In 2013 Made a Mano has developed a new production using the latest and most advanced technologies. The new modern techniques allow Made a Mano to cut the lava stone into amazing shapes and forms and the new improved silkscreening methods enable sharper and more refined patterns. All products are exclusively handmade, from the cutting through the glazing and free hand drawing decorations, hand printing and silkscreening.
I was trying to narrow photos from their 2013 catalog, which you’ll se down below, but it was impossible, all their products and these spaces and projects are so unique and original, one could only enjoy all of it or none at all.
All images above are from 2013 Made a Mano Catalog from their official website. There is also a 2010 catalog and other amazing and unique projects available on their website.
