    Cody from Ca’ Belli Luce, is a selection of wall lights that have been shaped and thinned by hand to create stunning stone wing effects. The stone closely follows the shape and form of the blown diffused glass hidden behind it creating a fluid yet strong image. Lecce stone from Salento, in the south east of Italy is a limestone, characterised by the presence of fossils (mostly plankton) from the Cretaceous-Tertiary era that began many millions of years ago.

    The beauty of this malleable sun gold stone is that it can withstand the passing of centuries and is used extensively in sculptural art throughout the region.

    Stone is the world of materials par excellence. Every architect or designer that appreciates the tactile and chromatic aspects of stone is passionate about Materials, and when using natural stone it makes us at Ca’belli think about territory, its evolution, its future, the fragility of its equilibrium, but for the population of that territory stone can becomes an identification, a reference for the area, such as is found with Bath and Bath stone.

    The path traced by the many hands working stone, from its extraction to the final use, fulfils a gap in our society; an antique wisdom that is kept alive through the use of almost forgotten workmanship.

    Stone Architecture enables us to recuperate a physical relationship with nature’s products, with their transformation and with the use that man makes of it. Mere utopia, maybe, but the aim underlying our Stone Architecture is to allow Mother Earth’s inhabitants to develop a renewed awareness of sustainable growth. Other learning experiences and opportunities arise naturally all along this stone route.

    Our future is based on materials, innovation and design. This formula sums up Ca’ Belli’s work. Our team is made up of craftsmen, designers and experts in a creative workshop that is our essence and the core of Made in Italy.
