STONE ON GLASS
In the past, only a few stones like Onyx could adequately transmit light through the means of natural or artificial lighting to create a striking visual effect. When milled to only a few millimeters and laminated to a rigid clear backing like glass, most marbles, granites and limestones become magnificently translucent materials, making your palette of translucent stones now endless. Large panels (Due to weight bearing issues, typical panel sizes are restricted to 2m x 1m x 15mm +/- 2mm) allow the authentic beauty of stone to stand uninterrupted, making it possible to achieve seamless, monolithic walls.
With classic character that evokes nostalgia and timelessness, stone possesses unique movement and graining that adds texture and depth to any space. As an interior feature, the stone slabs are reinforced by a layer of laminated glass on one side. For exterior use, the translucent stone is reinforced on both sides by laminated glass, with one side needed for mechanical assistance and the other for safeguarding the stone against the natural environment. We then work with specialists to implement the lighting technology for both interior and exterior applications.
Translucent stone is perfect for applications when you need a memorable design statement with a modern interpretation of a classic, reliable material. Some of the our uses of this product include: Star City Casino (fit-out of the High Rollers Bar), Hoyt’s Entertainment China Town (feature wall) and the University of NSW Roundhouse (bar top feature).
