Ambra by David Pompa
Updated: Jan 6, 2020
Ambra is a beautiful and poetic way to combine two materials, cantera and copper, in one piece, creating different visual levels in a simple and modern object. The subtle shape creates contrast and at the same time a perfect balance with the visual weight of the cantera. Ambra has a timeless style which fits perfectly in any environment, creating a dramatic light cone. It brings the stone material from the buildings structure into the centre of habitation. Cantera is a rock out of volcanic ashes and lava. It is a stone broadly used for structures and local architecture, since the prehispanic era and mainly during the colonial time, in cities all over Mexico.
