Our father started a marble factory in Italy 40 years ago and today this family run company offers interior and exterior design for spa, residential and commercial buildings. The headquarters and factory are in Italy and the showroom and logistics team is based in Germany.
Fabio Alemanno Design provides innovative, high class heated marble loungers: the Cleopatra Hot Stone Chaise Longue and the Diva Heated Marble Lounger. The loungers are suitable for therapeutical use and the preparation and completion of spa treatments, as well as for relaxation, and combine Italian design and German engineering.
They are works of art with the elegance and appeal of a marble sculpture and a surprising soft comfort that the natural warmth provides. Both are tiltable and handcrafted with an inner metal construction, giving strength and safety for public or private use, in wet or dry areas including hammam, tepidarium, caldarium, treatments, relax areas, swimming pools and more. They are available in three different marbles stones and three styles with a variety of colour combinations and have a 5 year guarantee. Fabio Alemanno Design also offers a design studio service giving customers the opportunity to use marble as a thermal element for their environments, such as bathrooms, for both public and private projects.
How does the lounger work?
The effect of long wave infrared is one of the most qualitative and the best preventative heat therapies available for many disorders and illnesses. In nature, this particular kind of heat is produced by the sun and by stones, such as marble, that once heated release the absorbed energy as long wave infrared (or far infrared) rays. The heated marble sculptures embody this natural energy. The loungers have an integrated controllable electrical system that warms the stone from underneath and as heat radiates through the stone, the warmth that emits is natural infrared warmth. The marble loungers are safe as the stone doesn't conduct electricity. The high penetrability of infrared rays causes heat reaction in the body through a process called resonance absorption. Blood circulation is enhanced and metabolism increases, stimulating the delivery of oxygen and nutrients in the blood cells to muscles and soft tissue. Accumulated toxins are eliminated through increased perspiration and improved lymph circulation.
Its effects are relaxation, a sensation of freedom and reduction of stress, increase of concentration and greater creativity, energy recharge, increase of productivity and increased blood circulation. It can provide relief to patients suffering from arthritis, neck and backache and chronic fatigue syndrome, and assist in stress reduction, detoxification, weight loss and skin purification among other benefits.
Unique selling points
Each lounger is a unique piece of well designed art which is cut, by machine, out of one stone block and finished by hand so that the surface is made smooth, comfortable and high quality. The product is exclusive, durable and can be customised.
A full delivery and installation service is offered to clients including information for use and maintenance and after sales support.
We also offer spas the chance to personalise our loungers and have them designed related to the architecture of the project or to the budget.
