The Finishes Explained

Forging metal to adorn architectural space requires knowledge and love for the material and its expressive potentialities, as well as great creativity and continuous technological research.

The meticulous attention to details and the manual execution of all finishing operations testify to the expertise of our company whose very identity and raison d’être is to experiment with metal and explore the full potential of its variation and permutations.

Brushed

Brass / Copper / Aluminum

Bespoke handcraft finishing created by kopar. for indoor and outdoor use. Brushed metal is obtained manually with specific machinery and abrasives, then protected with a transparent matt or glossy varnish.

There is nothing like the look of a true metal, with that rich and elegant feeling that metallic trimmed spaces bring to any environment. The singular characteristic of the brushed cooper, brass and / or aluminium will make any space elegant, charming, inviting, and welcoming.

Aged (aka Patinated)

Brass / Copper / Aluminum

Bespoke handcraft finishing created by kopar. for indoor and outdoor use. The processes by which we achieve a patina on our metals most naturally reflects the way they would naturally age if left to their own devices in nature or in dwellings in the company of humans. We do not add an artificial layer at any stage. The antique metal finishes are achieved through sensitive, controlled, and measured application of materials to metals that accelerates the natural ageing process. Metal undergoes such manual oxidation treatment to obtain chromatic effects. Subsequently it is lacquered with a protective transparent matt or glossy varnish.

Metals that have undergone a patination process either naturally or artificially whereby their surface is subsequently imbued with an aged appearance are referred to as patinated or aged metals. This beautifully handcrafted finish envelopes the raw metal with a vintage rustic charm. The metal is declined in infinite nuances to embellish any place and follow each time a different mood.

Oxidized

Brass / Copper

Bespoke handcraft finishing created by kopar. for indoor and outdoor use. Oxidized metal is obtained manually through the combination of fire, oxidation, and pigments, then protected with a transparent matt or glossy varnish. The latter ensures that the metal colors do not dull, and the texture is not lost. The whole metal oxidation process may last from 24 hours to as well as one week or even longer. A special patination fluid is applied for producing natural light blue and green verdigris effect in infinite variations, inspired by nature and its elements, on copper or brass that develops over many years when the metal weathers because of exposure to air and water (especially salt water).
