In order to have the lobby of the John Hancock Center, which was built back in 1969, sparkle once again with a new shine, an elegant floor made of Carrarra marble was laid, crowned by an artistically precious fountain in the middle. The combination of water and stone was carefully considered to the most precise degree. Imposing solid works made from wonderful Carrarra marble form the exterior walls, while the interior is made from Nero Assoluto Zimbabwe. As a result of this, the surface of the water appears to be dark, and an elaborate light is reflected by it, causing a starry sky to glitter on the ceiling. This project was the winner of the Pinnacle Award of Merit from the Marble Institute of America.
