PYRITE COLLECTION

This particular mineral, similar to steel, is made of amazing geometrical shapes: small cubes, as if sculpted into the metal. Usually, the major part of these pyrites comes from Peru, Italia or Slovakia. At extraction, the stones appear as a mix of chaotic forms. However, senior Pedro’s mine in Spain produces cubic pyrite of incredibly perfect shapes. This is the one exclusively selected and used for KAM TIN’s creations, displayed at many international art fairs.

These stones, declined in several sizes from 5 millimeters to 5 centimeters, are assembled with great dexterity by KAM TIN workshop in Germany, under Philippe Rapin’s direction. There, a true workmanship transforms the stones into a spectacular mirrored design.

With KAM TIN, the pyrites, taken out of the shadows, become cabinets, sideboards, lamps, consoles, nightstands and more. This fairy furniture, crossing every oceans, is collected by great interior designers and collectors. The pure and simple lines of this unique and timeless creation are a match made in heaven for both contemporary aesthetics and historical pieces.
