Artistic lattices with Arabic designs, floral or geometric motifs are part of the Arab/Indian culture and tradition. Throughout the East they have been used to cover interior spaces with lattices, be it on balconies that face the exterior, windows, space separating screens

Lattices create decorative and functional spaces that adorn palaces, mosques and mansions throughout the East, be it in Morocco, Egypt, Turkey, Iran and countries of the East, such as India in Muslim Mughal architecture. Made of different materials from wood, stucco, glass or marble.

The word lattice comes from Latin, and it means: “to let light pass through an openwork drawing”. Arab architecture and its decoration have been able to decorate the separation of spaces with this openwork sieve with geometric shapes or floral designs, inspired by the drawings of the mosaics, tiles and stucco muqarnas of large mosques and palaces, creating transparencies between one space and another, and decorating the separation of spaces with suggestive drawings. There is the genius of Arab architecture applied to interior decoration and its separation from the outside, whether in windows or balconies.

The lattice design concept is based on lighting, whether in Arabic lamps and lanterns, as well as in wall lights or ceiling lights. The idea is the same, to draw the light with geometric or floral arabesque drawings belonging to the Arab decorative tradition. For this, different materials are used: brass, copper, colored glass, wood…

The Arabic designs and style of lattices have been transformed, using new technologies such as laser cutting for the manufacture of lattices both in the space dividers and the new lamps from India that use the lattice designs in their manufacturing.
