Galvanised steel has always been highly sought after in industrial applications and in exterior architecture due to its resistance to corrosion, but never for aesthetic purposes. With a series of products – a shelving system, a tea set, side tables and a credenza – the RCA graduation project investigates the aesthetic qualities that can arise from the galvanisation process. A specifically developed surface treatment is used to celebrate the crystalline structure of galvanised steel and elevates the material. Diverse intensities of the crystalline pattern are created through different grades of patination. For the side tables and the credenza the material is combined with Italian granite to juxtapose it with other natural crystalline patterns.
