Through the fusion of design and mastery of the artisan, Alma de Luce introduce Darvaza, an elegant piece made from walnut and velvet which reveals a curious phenomenon. The Darvaza crater, locally called the Gates of Hell, is situated in the middle of the Karakum desert in Turkmenistan. It is one of the largest reserves of natural gas in the world. The name given by the local population refers to the fire, boiling mud, and the orange flames coming from the crater. The crater has a diameter of 70m, fueled by rich deposits of natural gas, and creates a scenario reminiscent of the popular description of the main access to the kingdom of Hades in Greek mythology.
