The processing of metals has left its mark on every era of ancient civilisations, contributing to human progress. As well as their practical uses, metals have always had an unquestionable charm that has come down through history right to our own times. Melted by fire and fused into alloys, metals have constantly played an essential role both in the past and in the present, in industry as well as in design.
With more recent production techniques, we have been able to create new products such as perforated, expanded and ashlar-effect metal sheets, wire mesh and many more, representing the starting point for unusual landscapes in architecture. In their raw version, in particular, when left in their native state, metals have an ever-larger part to play in interior design, not only for creating the more classic items such as railings and light fittings, but also in innovative applications, in furniture and wall-coverings.
