German Besco Company shows how natural stone can upgrade and support the representative function of public space
Some people, claiming that life has not improved relative to times gone by, look to the past mournfully. While this may hold true for some countries, others may have moved forward. Water in public spaces in a reliable indication of affluence: wells and fountains in public places no-longer serve the purpose of supplying water but rather pleasure for visitors and tourists.
Such facilities are, e.g.: streams, cascades, water tables, and water walls to name but a few – all used in combination with natural stone. And stone supports the representative function of these facilities in cities today.
Clever technology such as sprinklers, fountains or revolving globes add pizzazz and are especially popular with children.
