In today’s post, we will give you an insider’s look at how we mix, match and harmonize different components with our core metal elements to create contemporary and unique pieces of liveable art.
Let’s start with our metals, whether it’s brass, aluminum, stainless steel or bronze, all our finishes are handmade, and all the metal surfaces are lacquered to provide long lasting durability. As for the other material that we use to create our products, we definitely don’t hold back on experimenting with the best in class marbles, woods, fabrics and leathers.
When you look at the way we integrate marbles into our products, it’s not just an element that we use for our table tops, we expand the ingenuity of its application to the whole creation, just like we did with the Bold Tables where the marble tabletops match the legs in turned marble.
As for the Bold Sofa, lounge chair, armchair and cabinets you can particularly experience how the distinctive metal rim supports the seats and the cabinets to graphically encompass the material with which they are made.
The integration of marble is one aspect of engineering any of those pieces, we work diligently with the design teams to pick the latest and greatest marbles with unique grains and patterns to include into our pieces for maximum impact, quality and longevity.
Woods for us are a never-ending forest of creativity, used mainly to accent tables, cabinets, and shelves.
Whether you prefer the classical Mahogany, Walnut or Oak; feel the need for the timeless look of a classical Bolivar or prefer to be a bit more adventurous and choose the Caleido or New Lime, we have it impeccably included into our furniture in a tasteful manner that reveres both the metal frame and the wooden structures.
Fabrics and leathers:
With fabrics and leathers our approach is simple yet immaculate. It all revolves around richness of look, durability of product, ease of maintenance and longevity of surface texture.
The cotton velvet Adamo & Eva or Cord, the cotton satin TABULARASA, or the Boucle and chenille Safire, the fabrics we choose are built to last and never lose their glamour.
The same concept of particularity applies to leathers, in whichever denomination of nubuck or bovine, the quality and colours are included to interpret our high standards of excellence and our rigorous attention to detail.
Indeed, we are known for taming metals and it is one of greatest strengths but not our only forte.
