Metal is always a refined material to use in furniture. It gives an exquisite look to the design masterpiece. Boca do Lobo has a few pieces where you can observe how special such metal work can be.
From melted aluminum, cast brass, copper embellish and characterize the pieces.
The metal can also resemble another material like for example on Eden tables. The tables appear to be made in a different material, maybe also because of the tree inspired top.
The usage of patina on the metal gives it this aged look.
The Newton editions no one would ever guess that each ball is made in a sand mold and that it is a piece fully made with melted aluminum. The process of creation is unique.
Another way to work with metals, just by hammering them, gives a unique touch to the furniture designs. For example, to make the Imperfectio sofa, the artist hammer the brass until reaching the desired shape, making each piece one of a kind.
Or simply hammering completely the metal until it is totally shaped into a new look.
Adding a metal detail can make the whole difference, especially if it’s all hammered by hand, just like on Empire center table.
Diamond pyrite is the ecstasy of metal usage.
