Stainless Steel

The stainless steel in the Natural collection is both polished and brushed; both processes give a look that can be nicely combined with other natural materials. The pieces of stainless steel are first brought into the desired shape and then polished or brushed. Polishing creates a ‘reflective’ effect. When brushed, a robust look is created because the material is slightly sanded.

Finally, the whole is finished with a purified bee wax that is polished to a high-gloss finish.
