Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour is known for being the home of creative minds willing to think out of the box. Take furniture maker Decorus, which is pushing the boundary of surface design with its liquid metal finishes. These coatings create products with the look and feel of solid metal, without the associated weight and impracticality. Materials such as zinc, bronze, brass, white gold, aluminium and copper are ground into a fine powder and mixed with liquid before being applied to a surface or poured into a mould. The array of final finishes is impressive, from a thick impasto to sharkskin, and bespoke samples can be turned around in just a few days. Shown here is the ‘Arcadia’ console. The cast panel top and lower shelf showcase the infinite possibilities of these innovative finishes.
