Watch a Chunk of Lava Stone Get Grafted Onto a Carbon Fiber Bench

The making-of video for Peugeot Design Lab's latest project contains no words—it doesn't need any, since it shows every step of the process: From blasting a huge chunk of volcanic stone from its resting place to crafting a piece of carbon fiber to perfectly fit the rock's jagged profile. The resulting bench looks like like something that might've emerged from the sand in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

If you like craftsmanship and watching people creating something gorgeous, this video showing how they made the Onyx Sofa by Peugeot Design Lab will mesmerize you to no end. It covers the entire process and it's just beautiful to watch.

The 10-foot-long (3-meter) sofa is partly made of Volvic volcanic lava stone plus a a wood structure covered with carbon fiber. I really love the texture and its shape.
