Part 4 of An Exploration of Color: Countless Choices for Backlit Onyx Design
So Cool: White Onyx
Admittedly, sometimes when clients request white onyx slabs that have little to no color or texture, we wonder “why don’t you just paint the wall white or use an acrylic surface?“. But there’s something to be said for a sleek white slab that has cloudy layers that drift beneath the surface or distinctive sharp veins that form artistic compositions when bookmatched.
Backlit white onyx is a popular interior material, particularly in projects that are located in warm climate zones. (Think the Middle East, American South and American Southwest). The sleek nature of the stone surface visually represents coolness, and because our flat LED panels generate virtually no heat, the stone panels stay cool to the touch!
How do climate and context affect your color and material choices?
