The reference to mooring bollards was natural for this company located in Saint Jean de Luz.
Through special reflection conducted with each company Iratzoki takes into consideration each company’s culture, history and environment. Jean Louis Iratzoki seeks out the simplicity and authenticity of the object. The creations also display a touch of personality and gentleness.
Claude Retegui, civil engineer and his associate Olivier Ducout, master of advanced studies in mechanics and CAD-CAM, place the company’s technical know-how and skills at the service of new contracts and prestigious clients.
The 3D MarbleTechnology department at the Retegui marble works has developed techniques that enable the stone to be considerably lightened while at the same time ensuring great solidity and strength. These many and varied techniques, which combine marble with composite materials, include: complex bonding, digitally-controlled milling, aluminium honeycomb core assembly, and glass fibre or carbon combinations. The company’s extensive technical know-how is not only used in both the shipbuilding and aeronautics sectors, but is also highly appreciated by architects and designers who, through these technical combinations, are able to give free rein to their imagination and use stone in original and tailor-made creations.
