Copper lace table | Metalier Liquid Metal

Evoque copper lace table

The copper lace table featured is the result of a design collaboration between Amanda Neill of Designworx and Metalier Coatings.

This copper lace table is the first piece in a line of tables Amanda has created as a collection. The design is typical of Amanda’s work – it is striking, it is “out there”, it is utterly gorgeous and it is very different. Amanda loves colour, boldness and everything exotic. It is exciting working with her and stretching the capabilities of the Metalier Coatings Amanda chooses to use.

This nostalgic and romantic copper lace table was created using real lace which is applied to the surface of the piece and over the edges. Metalier Coatings are sprayed through the lace to create the pattern. After curing the copper is polished and then patinated. A dark patina was applied to give the pattern an aged look. A green patina was used to create the Verdigris look in the stripe in that runs off centre through the table.

The finishing touch was Metalier’s Nano Clear coat which is applied in a very thin but robust layer. The nano clear ensures that the finish doesn’t oxidise beyond the desire look and it protects the surface.

The legs of the copper lace table are all hand lathed from solid wood. Each leg is different and each is finished in aged copper.

The copper lace table dimensions are 1000 x 1000 x 450mm.  You can purchase the table through Designworx or by contacting Metalier directly.

Metalier has also competed a hall table in this collection. Three other pieces will be completed in the early part of 2016.

Metalier is always keen to work with designers and creatives to help them to realize their ideas. To contact us either click here or complete the form below.

Metal Veneer | Brass

Metal Veneer | Brass | The Sugar Club

Metal Veneer | Brass showcased at The Sugar Club

Metal Veneer | Brass is showcased at The Sugar Club in the Sky Tower in Auckland City.  It sits alongside sheet brass in a homogeneous glorious glamorous fit out.  It’s a suitable background for Peter Gordon’s extremely scrumptious fusion food.  One of our favourites is Beef Pesto.  It was on the menu at Peter’s original Sugar Club back in 1987.  His dining guests won’t let him take it off.

Metal Veneer | Brass in the private dining room

Private dining is the height of special.  Metal Veneer | Brass is the outstanding decorative feature of the private dining area.  Metal Veneer | Brass coats the MDF panels on the outside of the dining room and the inside too.  A lovely cocoon of brass!

Even the Powder Room has a touch of Metal Veneer | Brass

The porthole surrounds in the Gent’s and the Ladies’ Powder Rooms are Metalier Liquid Metal Brass.  You can bend sheet metal, of course, but the Metalier Solution of Metal Veneer in brass was more cost-effective and much easier to handle.

The Entrance Doors are Metal Veneer |Brass on a steel substrate

Metalier again shows its versatility on the grand front entrance doors to the restaurant.  It is brass and glass. You can see them in the projects section of this website and on most of The Sugar Club’s own sites.  If applying metal to metal it is necessary to create a barrier between the two metals to avoid osmosis occurring.  The Metalier team are old hands at the procedure, however.

Just in case you didn't know, brass is an alloy of copper and Zinc.  As well as being used in decoration brass is used in musical instruments for its acoustic properties.  It is a very popular choice of metal currently and teams beautifully with white or black.

At Metalier Liquid Metal we have lots of ideas for creating beautiful things in brass – and other metals too.

Metal Doors | Metalier Liquid Metal

Creating beautiful metal doors

Creating beautiful metal doors is one of the things we like best and do best at Metalier Liquid Metals.  We enjoy it so much because it enables us to work closely with clients, designers and builders to create a special “Wow” feature for homes, apartments, offices, restaurants and shops.

Your involvement in the process can be as much or as little as you like.  There is a door on the floor of the workshop in Henderson right at the moment which is very much a “hand’s on” project.  Samples have been created which the clients love.  “Awesome” was the word they used.

And just this week the designer has been in to mark out where she wants to locate the pattern lines.  The metal being used - our smoky bronze is a sultry moody colour.  The door itself is huge 2100 x 2200 – a total of 10 sq m including both sides and the edges.  The door is going to be an indoor feature in the lounge/living area.  And feature is the operative word.  It is going to be spectacular.  Pictures are promised.

Metal doors can be created using a variety of substrates

One of the benefits of Metalier is that it will adhere to almost any substrate.  The only things which are “no go” are silicone, waxed objects and people!  Metalier will adhere to anything that can be keyed to create a rough surface.  We couldn’t do a Goldfinger James Bond lady, for example.  (I was very disappointed to learn that death by gold painting was scientifically impossible.)

The most common substrates for doors, both indoors and out are wood and aluminium.  Both deliver excellent results.

One of the things that gives us the most satisfaction is delivering to the clients expectations on budget and on time.  And don’t think that a metal door is unaffordable.  It’s not and we can show you how.
