The Lacy Star Pattern of the Marble Screen Adds to the Indirect Light

Set high in the walls of the Multi-function Conference Room, marble screens let in filtered light from the Atrium.   Cut with water jets and then hand finished, their star pattern takes on a lacy effect by day.  As the room darkens, the stars come out.  Each piece of screen is two and a half meters long by one meter wide, and only four centimeters thick.  The delicate sections were shipped in plastic.
