Pittella now offers a new brass finishing process for its collection of premium-quality door hardware. Developed to allow its products to age just as elegantly as the finest interior environments, Pittella’s ‘Tumbled Brass’ process gives its solid brass designs a beautifully worn patina that develops unique characteristics over time.
The new Tumbled Brass process produces a natural, worn patina for our door handles and pulls. The finish is achieved by placing raw brass products into a tumbler containing small stones about the size of a 5 cents piece. The raw brass products are then ‘tumbled’ to allow the stones to remove unwanted casting marks without the use of chemicals, giving the brass a unique worn appearance.
The resulting worn-surface finish then takes on a special characteristic over time. Areas that are touched by the hand become lighter while areas that are rarely touched darken and oxidise as they age to create a beautiful and unique luster.
While the Tumbled Brass process complements many interior styles, it is particularly suited to organic and sustainable interior design schemes and is available for a selection of hardware designs, including:
A classic shape with a lean profile, the 807 door handle features a tactile design that sits perfectly in the hand.
With an elegant, elongated shape that gently curves from the wall, the Bellagio joinery pull is a classic design that is suited to a range of interior styles.
Featuring a smooth, organic rounded form, the Como joinery pull is beautifully suited to the Tumbled Brass finishing process.
The new Tumbled Brass process adds a unique, well-loved character to these elegant designs from the Pittella collection.
