Origin: When he saw the elegant, translucent pierced marble “jali” windows in the palaces of Mughal India, the renowned designer Paul Mathieu realized that he had discovered a wonderful new concept in lighting design. He decided to backlight a hanging marble jali panel to create an elegant and sophisticated statement in light and stone.
Manufacture: First, a solid sheet of marble is hand carved into a curved, gently billowing panel. Pierced jali tracery work is then hand carved into the surface, through which light and air pass with ease. Matching marble cones of light are then suspended from behind, resulting in a magnificent glowing sail of stone.
