The need to be close to nature is deeply rooted within Man. Despite our quest for new technologies to build taller building and ever bigger cities, Man has not forgotten nature.
As the awareness for going green becomes more widespread, many governments and companies are pursuing environmentally friendly and "green" policies and business practices. Jonite is proud to be a company that is part of this movement.
While the Roman empire was well known for its architecture, engineering marvels of its time and rich historical heritage, not many are aware of Rome's important emphasis of green spaces, gardens and parks. Back in the 15th and 16th century, the rich and powerful families of Rome lived in gorgeous villas surrounded by beautiful and stunning gardens and parks.
In most of ancient Rome, parks and gardens were treasured and were located both in the city center and in the outskirts. Amidst the greenery, marble statues were erected and green shrubs were trimmed in the most unique and creative ways.
This need to be close to nature is close to Man's hearts. Today's architects still exhibit this love for nature by often incorporating elements of natures in the buildings and cities they design. Parks and green open spaces are remedies for our busy souls in the concrete urban jungle.
In today's modern world, despite Man's quest for ever more concrete jungles and ever taller buildings that keep breaking the world record, Man's needs to be close to Nature is still evident today just as it was in the past. Architects will always incorporate elements of natures amidst our urban landscape. Visit any modern metropolis today and it won't be difficult to find a green sanctuary for you to fulfil your need for peace and tranquility.

The majesty of natural stone is perhaps best expressed by the magnificence of the stone castles of England. Inspired by the rustic appeal of natural stone, we wondered if the material could be used to make functional and beautiful grates.
With our eye for detail, exquisite craftsmanship and the infinite possiblities we offer in texture and colour, our engaging designs in gratings complement the vision of international architects and designers.
