Minerality Collection by AMOIA Studio
Updated: Jan 27, 2020
In the course of human history, people have believed in the power of various stones and crystals to treat and strengthen our mental, emotional or physical states. These materials all come from a unified and inspiring source, Earth.
Respecting the innate beauty of these minerals and their metaphysical properties, while exploring their appreciation for geometry and iconic twentieth design has resulted in AMOIA Studio's newest collection, Minerality.
Combining the brother duo of Samuel Amoia's vision for design, color, texture and furniture with sculptor Dominic Amoia's conceptual use of materials, and original casting process, AMOIA Studio presents an innovative cutting edge approach to furniture and design.
AMOIA Studio is re-contextualizing form and function with materials that are not in the traditional canon. Malachite, Amethyst, and Pyrite have never been thought of as materials for furniture, but with a unique casting process that also fuses more traditional materials such as cement or plaster, AMOIA studio creates bespoke pieces like nothing else before. With respect to the precious energy qualities of these rare minerals, all three AMOIA brothers wash, crush, and handle all of the stones themselves. Giving a family labor of love and collaborative energy to create these incredible artisanal and one of a kind pieces.
