Inspiration & Unique features – 2

2) Sapphire bridge – The sapphire bridge originated from the idea to mimic the floating feel of the rock of Monaco. To create this effect, we needed to produce a transparent bridge. As we found, current manufacturing technologies are not equipped to easily produce such small and precise parts out of sapphire. After a lengthy process in which we broke a considerable amount of glass, we landed on a laser cutting technology that could allow the precision as well as the finishing we were looking for. Finished with a special multiple layer double sided anti reflection coating to reduce light reflection and maximize the transparent feel, we are excited by the unique end result.
