Brass is back

Brass in the kitchen is in - and we're not just talking about the faucets anymore

Brass in the kitchen is in. Interior designer Birgit Tarp sees it as part of the search for craftsmanship and original materials that withstand everyday wear and becomes more beautiful with use.

Brass does not just enter the kitchen in the form of faucets. Multiform is experiencing demand for kitchens where brass is a continuous material. For example, it may be a whole kitchen island that is covered with brass. The metal plays well with warm-toned wood.

Interior designer Birgit Tarp from Design Circus says:

- Brass in interior decoration - and especially in the kitchen - is an expression that many want to return to the original materials like brass, which at one time both seem like a modern and timeless element in our interior design.

Longing for craftsmanship and natural materials
Birgit Tarp explains that many have a longing for the good craftsmanship and natural materials like brass, which can not be imitated. This happens as a reaction to many years of imitation of wood species and the further development of synthetic fibers in general. Brass is timeless and unique in an exclusive way.

Kitchen-makers at Multiform experience this demand from both Danes and consumers in other countries. The company is experiencing a growing interest in the handmade and individual kitchen that is unique. Multiforms wooden drawers are an example of handmade quality that is sought after.

Classic with an edge
- Even though a kitchen in brass may seem modern and maybe a bit daring, it's also a classic. Just think of the many brass elements that have been on ships for generations. It is a high quality material that gets patina and thus personality when used, says Anita Barner Ibsen, Marketing Manager at Multiform.

Birgit Tarp explains that many people want to surround themselves with materials that are rich in history and only become more beautiful when used, and the time has set its mark. It can be brass in the kitchen, a table top of stone or a patinated leather cushion.

Brass on a large or small scale
At Multiform, all kitchens are tailored to the individual customer, and there is a big difference between where and how much brass customers want.

- The Danes have become more brave in terms of contrasts and colors in the interior design. The white, minimalist, neutral wave - where everything was white on white - is increasingly replaced by saturated natural color areas on the walls, for example. Here, the brass in the kitchen fittings is also beautiful, points out Birgit Tarp.
