Copper, and copper alloys, are highly appreciated by designers who make beautiful objects for around the home, some decorative, some functional. Brass and bronze in particular make exceedingly good choices for door furniture (handles and knobs), lights and lamps, furniture (chairs, sideboards, tables). Brass is also used for sanitary ware such as taps, usually chrome plated.
Copper offers beauty, personality, color and durability.
Today, copper is very much the designer’s material of choice. Interior design shows across Europe regularly feature new products made from copper, brass and bronze. Materials used as much for their appearance as for their excellent physical and electrical properties.
