Cristallium is ‘Made in France’! It comes straight from the Auvergne and is the brainchild of a young French designer.
Cristallium, otherwise known as synthetic crystal, is an acrylic resin of superior quality. Its astonishing properties make it the perfect choice for the manufacture of design objects or the making of jewellery and eyewear.
Cristallium is known for its unusual brilliance, and its particular composition makes it more translucent than glass itself! This resin is perfect for embedding precious materials or stunning optical effects.
Cristallium is an exceptional material. It boasts a beautiful jewel-like, mirror-effect finish and feels as soft as silk to the touch.
Apart from being aesthetically sophisticated, Cristallium is also an uncommonly strong material! Items embedded within this material are perfectly shock-proof, it offers excellent resistance to UV rays and even the merciless dishwasher leaves its splendid finish unharmed, meaning knife handles are preserved beautifully intact.
