Tephra Formations by Robert Stadler

Austrian designer Robert Stadler has designed a range of furniture based on volcanic explosions. 

The series, entitled Tephra Formations, includes seating, an armchair, pouf and low table.

The name ‘Tephra’ is derived from the Greek for ‘ash’, while ‘bomb’ is the term used for volcanic eruptions that emerge in a partially melted state.

The project is a continuation of an earlier work by Stadler called Pools & Pouf!, which was shown at the Carpenters Workshop Gallery in London as part of an exhibition called Bifurcations last year.

Here’s some text from Robert Stadler:

“Tephra Formations” appears as a continuation of the “Pools & Pouf!” ensemble but is yet a different story.

Even if the starting point can still be seen as a critique on traditional bourgeois values in furniture, it is rather representing an idea of mutation than dissolution.

The word tephra derives from Greek and means ash. Volcanologists describe tephra as soft material of various sizes that hit the ground after having been ejected from a volcano.

“Tephra Formations” is a co-edition with Carpenter’s Workshop Gallery.
