Disks realised with Orange Onyx on glass for a restaurant in Milan

Public projects

Designer: Arch. Nisi Magnoni

Realised in: 2015

Employed material: Orange Onyx

Description: The project’s main part was the realisation of enormous disks with Orange Onyx glued on glass. These disks were meant by the designer to recall gongs, oriental musical instruments, and to represent the main stylistic element of the restaurant. The greatest difficulty in the realisation of these elements was their large dimension, the diameter was in fact 250 cm. The most suitable technical solution was to glue two Orange Onyx book-matched slabs, 10 mm thick, on a disk made of extra clear tempered glass, 15 mm thick: so we have guaranteed the material’s translucency, together with very good resistance and weight characteristics. The project was completed with the supply of Orange Onyx elements for the backlit bar counter and some niches.
