The power of backlight on the stones

Both marble and granite have an incredible beauty. Thanks to the unique drawings and variation of shades in its composition. The use of the backlight is a big trend in decoration of architectural projects, because it allows to highlight what the natural stone has the best to offer.

The backlight is only possible in translucent materials or in our materials that have the Pietrafina technology.

Pietrafina technology consists in decrease the stone’s density. It goes through an exclusive cutting process and other transformations to become translucent. This effect by itself is already gorgeous and besides making the materials translucent, this technology also permits more lightness and resistance. It’s incredible, isn’t it?

The light applied on the back excels the veins and colors of the materials, which makes the beauty of the stone even more in evidence.
