The inventive activity developed in the R + D department, allow us to apply the results of these researchs to design new creations in the field of water architecture, which for its originality and fantasy transform public spaces into real Urban Oases: unique meeting places for leisure and recreation where water plays an important role.

The application of the latest advances in technology is essential in the design of our projects, being our main motivation the constant research for new forms of water expressions. Among the main lines of research and realization we developed are: Urban beaches, Smart Fountains, Digital Water Curtains, Compacts Jets for ground level fountains, Aquatic Ballets and multimedia Water Shows.

Lumiartecnia collaborates with many architects, decorators and renowned artists to help them create innovative and cutting-edge water designs integrated into their projects and artwork. We have developed many works for water-related places such as: exhibition centers, international exhibitions, museums, hotels and upscale restaurants.

There are many fountains rehabilitated by Lumiartecnia International. To do this we apply the most sophisticated technology in both the control systems using our Controlidor Master Controller, in mechanical systems (new generation valves) and lighting, with a wide range of new LED lights that allow considerable energy saving and durability.
