HOW A FOUNTAIN IS BORN
Commissioned in February 2017, by a Qatari company, the fountain had to meet the customer’s needs, so the design started from the study and then moved on to the plumbing and electrical systems.
Once the work plan was presented and accepted, it was then the turn of the actual realization. Starting from blocks of travertine, various stages of processing followed: turning for the cylindrical elements, use of the anthropomorphic robotic arm for the most complex and heavy objects and a lot of labor for the finishing touches.
Once the components were completed, it was necessary to test them in our headquarters, to makes necessary changes and obtain the conformity and functionality of all elements.
In June 2017 the final configuration was completed and, approved by the client, the work was disassembled and packed in special wooden crates, in order to be transported by ship, from Italy to Qatar, on a journey of about 90 days.
Approved, in autumn 2018, the necessary documentation for the start of the works, were commissioned by “Marmi Arredo Casa MS”, professionally experienced people in the sector, Guido Guidotti and his son Gabriele, to proceed with the final installation inside of the “Commercial Bank” in Doha, Qatar.
THE THREE PHASES OF THE DOHA FOUNTAIN
TRAVERTINE IS FOREVER!
Since Roman times, artists had intuited the perfect marriage between travertine and water.
Therefore, this material is still used today in the construction of public and / or private works such as the fountain created by Cantarelli Marmi Arredo Casa in Qatar, in the Commercial Bank of Doha.
An important project, which lasted several months, which saw Apuan artisans and professionals at work, capable of giving life to a real work of art: all starting from the precious stone materials supplied by Cantarelli Marmi Arredo Casa.
Here is the Doha fountain: our pride!
