Brass, protagonist in the fifties and sixties, has returned to give emphasis in design and furniture proposals with its warmer vibration than other finishes. Its features reinterpret the languages (Nordic style, glam and vintage revival) of contemporary design, proposing itself as an alternative and integration to traditional materials for interior design.

Furthermore, also related for tactility to copper (Compared to copper, brass has higher values of hardness, resilience and fusibility) and bronze, brass is able to communicate more than other metals due to its ability to bring brightness and richness through its gilding and brilliance.

Brass is an alloy of Copper and Zinc that has existed for millennia and with different uses. There are some characteristics of brass, starting from its aesthetics, with a bright yellow color, for which it has always been combined with gold. In ancient times, brass was also considered almost as valiant as gold. It is thought that since the times of ancient Greece, 2500 years ago, Plato referred to brass when speaking of Oricalco. An almost legendary metal present, according to him, even on the walls of the legendary Atlantis.

The brass

Brass has a density of 8.73 Kg / dm3 which varies according to its copper and zinc content, the alloying elements from which it is formed. Thanks to the aluminum oxide that forms on the surface in some of its special alloys, the internal structure of the brass increases its resistance to corrosion.

The uses of special aluminum alloys in the naval sectors are many, especially linked to other elements such as manganese, silicon or if applied dezincification or DZR techniques, but not applicable for cold working and with little sustainable industrial processes.

Another capacity that this material has within, is the possibility of burnishing, which can also occur artificially with special processes that stop its coloring over time. The burnishing can be calibrated according to specific design needs and can vary from brown to finishes tending to green or blue.

Therefore, we can define it as a ductile and highly workable material with traditional and innovative methods destined to last over time, enriching itself through its oxidation of valuable details.
