UK-based designer Daniel Schofield has produced a tableware collection that cleverly contrasts the qualities of untreated and mirror-polished brass.
Each piece in the Tarnish Collection has been designed to have one highly polished half that has been lacquered so no marks can be left, while the other half is left untreated so it is able to develop a patina.
As objects are handled, the natural oil from the fingertips tarnishes the surface of the untreated brass. Over time the marks build up to create a unique patterned finish, giving the collection emotional value beyond its functional use.
The collection will be officially launched at the designjunction exhibition as part of London Design Festival.
Look out for further coverage of the event coming soon.
