Amongst the various metals that Boca do Lobo works with, and is passionate about, Brass definitely stands out. As a noble material, with physical properties which make it ideal to work with, using both traditional and modern techniques, it is also astoundingly good looking, standing the test of time in countless projects.
Below, find a selection of photos of brass furniture pieces, accessories, and environments that keep us excited to work and create with this unique metal.
Suiting a wide variety of lines and design types, Brass is flexible and neutral in terms of tone and standard colour pallet. It can compliment a wide range of environments and languages, but must be used tastefully for best results.
Above, the Vogue Lounge in Bangkok designed by David Collins, is a quintessential example of a balanced environment that recurs to Brass as one of it’s principal elements. A smooth shock of classic and contemporary, with plenty of modernist traits, the Vogue lounge plays with brass in terms of shape, texture, and making a successful transition between the setting’s light and darker pallet.
Brass also finds itself at home in bright environments, where pale tones and plenty of natural light prevail. An absolute stunner when complimented with marble, brass can bring a sense of warmth when light reflects off it.
It suits all sorts of shapes and languages, from minimalist geometric lines, to curvy and organic elements, filled with texture and intricate details.
Moreover, when combined with upholstery, Brass delivers an unparalleled visual experience, where class meets timeless design in a unique clash of materials and texture.
