Bronze door fittings are guaranteed to add an authentic and rustic appearance to any interior.
Bronze is often used for designing door handles and door pulls. And rightly so, because bronze offers a range of advantages. Bronze is not only very robust and antibacterial, it is also highly versatile.
A new era with bronze door fittings
A few years ago, minimalist interiors were setting the tone with sleek forms and sombre colours. Warm, eye-catching fittings, such as bronze were certainly not the focus.
This trend, however, has now been reversed and bronze door fittings are appearing in various houses once again. It offers a touch of warmth to even the sleekest interiors.
Raw bronze: the purest form of bronze, an alloy of copper and tin. Raw Bronze adds warm, coppery shades. After frequent usage, the bronze will become polished, in a natural way, and a light gloss will be created.
Raw Bronze Polished is the polished version of Raw Bronze and offers a shiny, smooth, coppery finish. With the passing of time, this will take on a patina which creates a more matte, warmer bronze.
Natural Bronzeis another alloy of copper and tin. The alloy has a red colour which, as a result of the chemical reaction with oxygen, will develop an oxide layer. The areas that are most exposed to oxygen will become darker and the bronze areas where there is greater rubbing (e.g. human contact) will become lighter. A real living finish!
The use of high-class elements in interiors dates from the Art Deco and Art Nouveau period. During this period, stately homes were richly decorated with customised, traditionally cast bronze door fittings, among other things. These robust, solid bronze door fittings exuded pure prestige and were one of the highlights of the period.
The Fama® collection also originates in this Art Deco style. The Natural Bronze finish perfectly symbolises the chic appearance and luxurious feel of the 1920s. The handsome Giara® collection is also available in Natural Bronze.
