Light facade and wall cladding made from real natural stone, such as marble and granite. By using a special technique, ultra-thin plates are sawed from blocks of natural stone, almost resulting in a veneer. These plates are then glued on to lightweight honeycomb panels. This creates a panel that has the look and feel of massive natural stone, but weighs a lot less. Just as with other natural stones, different types of finishes can be made.
A second option is the fixation of the thin stone on glass. This enables the application of the translucency of very thin natural stone in windows, facades, etc.
