The Beauty of Shine
For those who love unalterable material, Buddy’s new PVD finishes won’t oxidize, corrode or scratch overtime, so it will still look like new in years to come.
Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) is a highly innovative technology where a thin metal vapour is deposited onto objects in a vacuum chamber. This produces an extremely high surface hardness, preventing scratching or corrosion and offers a long lasting, highly durable finish that will not age or alter over time. The production process is environmentally friendly as it does not create chemical waste, harmful gases or other residues.
The Beauty of Time
For those who love a unique living appearance, Buddy’s organic finishes evolve over time, taking on a patina and oxidisation dependent on its environment.
Organic finishes are raw metals that are left un-lacquered or coated meaning they will naturally patina and age over time. Perfect for adding character to industrial, rustic or contemporary settings, the look and feel of organic or living finishes will get their own individual character, whether it’s exterior tapware that faces the elements of nature, or interior pieces that are constantly touched and handled. Due to the variations in raw material composition, there will always be natural variation in components within different environments, even within the same house, depending on your area, usage and water properties.
Metals, such as natural Brass, that are polished or brushed will generally darken over time, whereas Brass that has been aged or pre-oxidised, will lighten where it is touched and handled. If desired, Organic finishes can be maintained to their near-original state with regular cleaning, buffing or waxing.
"il fascino dell’ età - the charm of age"
Above are some examples of how the different Organic finishes can look overtime.
Please note that these are only examples - your own unique Buddy Organic item will vary.
