BLU PELTRO By Materica
Metallization with pewter
The Blu Peltro finishing is an elegant fusion of strength and serenity. With tones ranging between dark grey and deep blue, this finishing embodies a profound emotional appeal. Like a mirror on starry nights, it lends objects an aura of mysterious beauty and a unique character
It all stems from a simple and enlightening intuition: take a technique born as an anti-corrosive treatment and revolutionise it, exploiting its aesthetic potential to breathe new life into a surface. If the characteristics and geometries of an object allow it, metallisation succeeds in creating something truly special: a new 'skin', a precious envelope that makes metallic what is not metallic, enhancing the plastic and sculptural dimension of a material. The gesture is as powerful as it is surgical: an electric arc gun melts wires of pure metal - copper, bronze, brass, zinc, nickel silver - and the particles are projected violently onto the surface. Whether wood, glass, brick, marble, resin-coated polystyrene or fabric, the metamorphosis is sudden, definitive, enhancing. Like the birth of a new identity.
