The fiber of Basalt is three times stronger than steel and its physical and mechanical properties are closely similar to carbon fiber.  The subtext is that everything that is made of fiber is durable. The furniture is made by using a specially-designed machine and adapting previously-used techniques.

It can be used to make stylish and fanciful furniture exclusively for outdoor purposes. The furniture is eco-friendly in the sense that the fibers in the rock can absorb negative environmental electromagnetic radiation. It is also fire resistant.

This marvelous furniture line can give a more stylish and trendy look to your living room.  Basalt fiber yarn is sourced from molten basalt rock by expanding it through the platinum/rhodium alloy spinner.  Basalt is usually used for military and space exploration purposes.
