CHÂTEAU 150 LEX POTT EDITION
Classic style cooker
New design of the Château 150, created this year in collaboration with the Dutch designer Lex Pott. Under the guidance of the designer, the solid brass faces of the iconic ranges are transformed into fascinating oxidised textures of electric blue.
Lex Pott’s work has always been passionate and highly personal in regards to both the materials used and their origins, he uses minimalist lines to bring out the essence of things. Growing up in a family of painters, he approaches transformation in its all its pictorial, graphical and formal aspects. His work on the oxidation of metals has led to what can only be termed “true colour”.
With a metal oxides, he is attempting to find organic colours that are alive, have an edge of imperfection and can be worked like paint. The material develops a patina as it ages, which becomes increasingly sophisticated over time.
