Le Pietre Luminose, stone brought to light
Design Raffaello Galiotto
A seducing journey through the luminous texture of marble.
The Le Pietre Luminose collection introduces on the market a new product configuration, eight extraordinary and unprecedented models of back-lit modular 3-dimensional stone coverings, where light drives the design and the design directs the light into fascinating luminous and ornamental effects.
The collection has been created from the sophisticated combination of design, the processing of surfaces across three dimensions, and thorough research into illumination techniques applied to the translucent properties of marble. Alcor, Antares, Mizar, Naos, Polare, Rigel, Sirio and Vega, eight names of stars for eight luminous claddings, whose design is characterized by all-over patterns that were studied taking into account their modularity and multi-functionality.
With Le Pietre Luminose, walls spring to life. Light enchants and enhances every facet of the design, goes all over and reveals every difference in the slope, in the thickness and in the cut of the stone, highlighting the multiplicity of the worked surfaces. Light penetrates and passes through the natural element, revealing its most sensual and intimate soul. As a result, the marble is fully revealed, it shows off the harmony of its inner layers, and it displays unexpected colours as it returns a soft and suffused light to its surroundings, which in turn acquire a strong scenic personality of their own.
Each texture provides a multi-purpose aesthetic effect: it has a strong impact even without back-lighting, and produces its maximum expression when back light and grazing light are combined. Each module – measuring 60x60cm - comes equipped with a luminaire that contains an independent light source (available either in the fluorescent or the LED version), in order to ensure that normal maintenance is practical and easy. Furthermore, the independent light source included in each module ensures that the back-lighting is uniform, so that the aesthetic result is impeccable.
