From Carved Lava Couches to Carbon Fiber Hockey Sticks

When it comes to carbon fiber products, there is no shortage of items or industries that employ this durable material. Spun from various pieces of volcanic rock, these products stand the test of time and show how this specific element is perfect for moulding into different forms.

The Onyx sofa is one example of how this material can be adjusted to create a work of art. Designed by Pierre Gimbergues, the sofa was carved from scratch, and formed into a functional sitting piece (although you may need a few cushions to soften the surface). Even certain high heels have incorporated carbon fiber products to add to its chic look and ensure the design will hold up in even the most difficult conditions. The black finish also gives them a fierce and memorable aesthetic.
