If you follow some of the question threads on this photo, I believe Robyn Scott answered these questions for someone else with more specifics than I can give you as the lighting designer. I believe the back wall is a type of green onyx and the walls and floor are some sort of marble...but as I mentioned, if you look through the question threads you may be able to find the exact answer from the interior designer.

Good Luck!

I love this look too! This effect is very east to achieve without breaking the bank! Very Simple, buy a stock image or buy a small stone and take your own shot. Take the image to a sign company have them print out any size you like, have it laminated, or you could even cover with a clear sheet of plastic or glass, if you don’t want to hold with screws, you could just add trim around it. Backlighting can also be done if you have the sign company print it out translucent or at 80%, then stick on plastic.

We had a small bump-up at the rear of the niche where we concealed some Wet Location Listed LED strip lights. For these we used a warm white iCove light from Color Kinetics (now part of Philips). Today I'd do the detail with a wet location tapelight. There are a number of manufacturers who make these that can be found on Houzz like Paradigm, Environmental Lights and others.

Thx.

No, we talked about backlighting the onyx wall, but at the time we designed this we didn't have the options we do today and needed a rather large void space to make it look even. With Flat LED panels, pulling off a good backlighting job becomes easy. Not cheap, but not difficult.

As the lighting designer, I was involved in the design and specification, not the installation. However, I can tell you we did use wet location listed LED strip lights. The connections of strip lights listed for wet locations are already per-sealed. I've seen mounting channels fastened with clear silicone to stone like this and under the bench, that could be how they did the installation. Inside the niche, there's a good chance they mechanically fastened the mounting channel to the lid of the niche with screws. Thx.

The LED strips were only in the niche and under the bench. The onyx is only being lit by the two downlights above. If we would have backlit the onyx, we would have needed a void space behind and depending on how much of a void, we would have chosen an appropriate light source. In a shallow void, you might have needed an LED light sheet and if there was a deep void, it could have been done with linear strips. This was never our intent with this slab. Thx.

186 Lighting Design Group - Gregg Mackell
The back wall is actually illuminated from the front, not the rear. If you are looking to do a similar detail, but backlight a translucent stone, you must just design access to the light. Depending on the amount of space you have behind the wall, the type of source may vary. If you have a lot of space, say more than 12", you may want to look at using strip fluorescent lights on a spacing where you can't see any lamp imaging. For many pieces of stone I've backlit, the amount of light you get from fluorescents can really make it look good. If you only have a few inches, you should use a backlight like an LED light sheet which can provide even lighting with as little as 1/2" clearance. Even though this should last a very long time, it may go out and need to be maintained. You may have to design in some sort of track (like a sliding door track) and a flexible electrical feed such that you can slide out the light sheet if you need to get to it.

John,

They were Color Kinetics Powercore white LED strips. Not near as bright as it looks because digital cameras have a hard time dealing with LED light. They're dimmable, so in an every day situation they can be set to a lower level. I believe this was a stem shower, but the interior designer has a way of hiding things like the no\zzle, it may be under the bench. If I was to do this today, I'd most likely use a wet location tapelight. For the removable towels.......they must be imported.

Hi Gregg,

You wrote: "...but the interior designer has a way of hiding things like the no\zzle, it may be under the bench."

I don't think so, because if the "steam nozzle" is under the bench, you couldn't sit on it while steam is coming out. It would be too hot for your legs. So if this is a steam shower, the "steam nozzle" could be hidden in the curb/threshold on the right side or what I would try to accomplish, inside the linear drain - located on the Onyx wall.

Regards.

The strips in the niche and under the bench were 3000k, but the onyx wall is only lit from the front. This design was done just before I saw my first light sheet so there is no backlighting. That would have been a perfect solution here.

Susan, we didn't backlight the slab. With virtually flat LED light panels no available, this would be relatively easy to do today. When we designed this a few years ago we didn't have such an option. Without a light source like an LED light panel we would have needed a lot of depth behind the slab to backlight it evenly. With the architecture we had to work with, we didn't have that option. Thx.

Hi Clare, the answer is yes, however first I would need a couple more information.

What material is the bench. Is the bench tiled or it is a granite or marble slab? ( A full piece of slab would be very heavy!) Are the walls already framed (especially the knee wall) and if yes what material was used? (For example: 3"x4" wooden framing with both sides gyprock screwed)

On the side of the full wall it is not a problem at all. The tricky part is on the open end of the knee wall.

I assume you would need a welded metal construction which holds the bench. (The best would be Stainless steel, at least in the shower area, inside the wall this could bee painted steel.) I would this "metal-construction" probably fasten to the floor joists of if possible to a beam.

You can e-mail me so I could send you a drawing. A sketch and pictures of the open walls and if possible also a picture of the floor joists would be very helpful.

Cheers Bertram

Clean Design
The bench will be made of stone (caesarstone, most likely). I would like it to have a beefed up look (similar to the photo above but maybe slightly slimmer)...i am thinking somewhere btwn 2-3". Nothing has been constructed yet (the knee wall currently does not exist so it can be made using whatever materials you think best). Can't send pics of the floor joists yet as it's not demo'd yet...

Under lighting the shower bench? - What type of light is that under the shower bench? How did you tie it into the waterproofing of the shower? It appears to be a framed in housing of sorts I'm guessing from the shadow cast.... ??? Great looking shower! Nice job. John Whipple No-Curb.com

Thanks Elizabeth. Amazing work. I would love some play by play pictures if Dan took them. Any chance you got some shots of the steel work for the bench support? info@byanydesign.com

This is an amazing shower. Great design, lighthing, etc.. Can this stone be used in a steam shower or is it too porous and will it also darken?

I was the lighting designer on the project, not the interior designer. I'm not sure about it's availability in Egypt, but it is an Onyx slab. For something with this much texture and color, I would guess it is around $3,000 - $6,000US for the slab at the rear. For the lighting, used some wet location rated strip lights and square aperture recessed lights that might have been about $1,500 installed

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to See How One Feature Can Make a Room Captivating
If there is one thing that consistently makes a room, it's the art. It's tempting to stick with paintings in the palette of the room, but sometimes finding a piece you love is the most important thing. It's amazing how easily those pieces often work with the design you already have.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Tune In to the Music of Architecture
Marcato. This is when a particular piece (note, cord or passage in music) is played louder and more forcibly. This is akin to the accent wall in architectural design. Maybe another color or another material, the piece that is played marcato takes center stage and enriches the space it inhabits.
John Whipple - By Any Design ltd. added this to Shower Lights Bathe Bathrooms in Brightness
This shower is as much a work of art as a shower. The backlit slab on the back wall casts all sorts of great lighting around and serves as only one source of light for this shower. Something like this needs special planning with an electrician and a tile setter.The underbench light would make a perfect nightlight for this bathroom. Tip: Keep light features on separate switches so you can layer the lights as you like.
