'When you add too much to something you actually end up taking away. The same holds true when you work with lava stone. There is no need to make it look more “raw" because the core of the plate, the tile, already is the most raw material available. To that you can add a delicate surface of patterns and colours, and then you really have a unique mix.’
NanaKi Bonfils, Creative Director

Never one-sided, always unequalled
Made a Mano work exclusively with stone from the active Strato volcano of Mount Etna, Sicily. Our craftsmen use uniquely developed techniques in their work where the raw, and extremely resilient, lava stone is transformed into long lasting beauty. The process imitates the heat of the volcano, creating a durability that ranges from the extremely cold minus 60 degrees Celsius to the scorching temperatures of the hottest fireplace.
With our unique product range, Made a Mano offer tailor made solutions for private homes and commercial projects alike. A perfect fit for ambitious homeowners and international architects who wish to create a unique expression whether working with a small bathroom, a large hotel lobby or the side of a skyscraper.
Made a Mano products are never one-sided, but always unequalled.
