Finishes

Our signature finishes stay true to the materials we use for honesty and integrity.

Brass 

Brass is a living metal and will uniquely patina over time and with use. The environment it is in and how it is used will affect its appearance throughout its life. Though the brass will change in appearance, the structural integrity will remain. We leave our brass raw to stay true to the material, and believe its organic nature is a thing of beauty that tells a story of how things are used and leave traces of moments of the past. 

We recommend that the brass is left to settle in its new home for a few months to age, like your favorite pair of jeans. Initial usage will be quite prominent but will mellow and become more uniform as it is used more and more. We occasionally refer to new brass as a teenager – all spots and action! This does settle over time. 

The other reason we choose raw brass is that it can always be brought back to a bright luster if desired.  

Stainless Steel 

Marine grade 316 stainless steel is our choice across our product range. It has been chosen for its excellent corrosion resistance, particularly around salt water. It is a perfect material for our harsh Australian environment and indoor – outdoor lifestyle. Stainless steel, more so the lesser grades, may be susceptible to tea staining, a discoloration of the surface seen especially in marine environments and areas of high pollution. It is however a cosmetic issue that does not affect the structural integrity or the lifetime of the material. 

Stainless is also a raw metal finish that can always be brought back to a bright luster if desired. 

Aged Bronze 

Our aged bronze is a living finish that is hand applied making each item unique. We take solid brass components through the process to achieve the warm bronze tones layering our engineered items with beauty. This finish will continue to age over time, with the environment it is in and how it is used, affecting its appearance over its life. Though cosmetically this finish will change, the structural integrity of the base brass material will not be compromised. We love living finishes for the story it tells of time and place, and of how things are used, leaving traces of moments of the past. 

Blackened Brass 

Our blackened brass is a living finish that is hand applied making each item unique. We take solid brass components through the process to achieve the luxurious, yet mysterious black layering our engineered items with beauty. This finish will continue to mature over time with the environment it is in and how it is used affecting its appearance over its life. Expect the item to burnish, bring back the warm gold of the brass at high touch points and edges. Though cosmetically this finish will change, the structural integrity of the base brass material will not be compromised. We love living finishes for the story it tells of time and place, and of how things are used, leaving traces of moments of the past.
