Italian-born, Eindhoven-based designers Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin are known for injecting imaginative, self-brewed materials into their conceptual designs, but this season they’ve outdone themselves with basalt taken from the Etna and Stromboli volcanoes. The duo milled, casted, melted, blew and even wove this dry lavic rock into an unrecognisable yet beautiful substance for stools, mirrors, clocks and tableware. The collection was named after George Bauer’s scientific text, ’De Natura Fossilium’.

8 - 13 April; Gallery Libby Sellers, Palazzo Clerici, Via Clerici 5; www.formafantasma.com
