Gliottone Marmi srl is looking for lighting solution (a post, an applique, a light diffusor, vertical or horizontal) made of marble or stone.

The lightning element can be designed both for outdoor and indoor.

You can find inspiration and info on Gliottone Marmi website, in "lavori" section.

The technology used to realize the product is the waterjet, a machine that curves marble whit a high pressure jet. Its process is more versatile and easy to operate: it does not require further processing, it produces mechanical deformation and thermal energy, has no limits of materials and thicknesses up to 18 cm carving.

An important benefit of the water jet is the ability to cut material without interfering with its inherent structure, as there is no "heat-affected zone" (HAZ). Minimizing the effects of heat allows metals to be cut without harming or changing intrinsic properties.
