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.

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.

Black Copper | Metalier Liquid Metal

Metalier Black Copper launched

This week Metalier launched its latest metal, Black Copper.  It has been the most successful launch in the Company’s history.  Architects and samples are clamouring for samples and it was specified the day after launch by MMiD Studio.  How is that for speed?

Black is always in fashion: and now there is Black Copper

We have often been asked for Black Metal but only now have we achieved what our designer clients have been asking for.  And it is so beautiful.

Metalier Black Copper sparkles

Because Black Copper is actually real Copper it has the minutest bright red copper specks randomly through it.  These specks do nothing to diminish the blackness of the finish.  Rather, they add to its depth and beauty.  Black Copper Liquid Metal is an incredibly sumptuous and luxurious finish.

Black Copper can be used indoors or out and it does not rust or corrode.  It is an excellent and cost-effective alternative to blackened steel.   It can be used anywhere – on kitchen cabinets and islands, on stairwells and reception counters.  It is equally at home in residential settings, in offices, retail or in bars and hotels.

Black is Metalier’s signature colour.  

It features strongly on our website and on our brochures and documentation.  Our business cards are black.  It was very gratifying this week placing samples into envelopes with a business card.  If you needed any proof that the metal was black, it was all there when the metal and card where placed side by side.

Metalier’s Black Copper liquid metal has been launched first in New Zealand.  If you are somewhere else, get in touch with us or the hub nearest you.  Launches elsewhere will follow shortly.  You can contact us the contact page on our website, by emailing us or by completing the form below.

We know you’ll love Black Copper as much as we do.
