Faux Real | Aluminum Finishes

Imitating natural materials changing the accepted end use.  In an age of virtual reality, materials and processes continue to evolve blurring the boundaries between the real and the fake.  Faux finishes can be similar to the real world or designed to differ significantly from reality.

This series of aluminum finishes translates authentic leathers, from exotic skins to shagreen, onto metal.  Skin from crocodile, stingray, snake, eel and even ostrich is the starting point for the patterns.

Request aluminum finish samples from this series of finishes to explore the possibilities available to you in incorporating these surfaces into nameplates or decorative trim.

What are Mood Boards?

Mood boards feature aluminum finishes developed around themes, focusing on the use of mechanical process, color and texture to create surfaces which are our interpretation of trends in the market.   The finishes are inspirational, a starting point for creating a surface for your trim or nameplate application.
