Metal finishes by Pure+Freeform
The finishes were designed by Will Pilkington and Geoffrey Hahn.

Introducing five new tarnished and patina metal finishes by Pure+Freeform, a bespoke metal company based in New York that creates custom, solutions-based metal paneling systems. Part of the studio’s new Simply Modern collection, the finishes range in color and feel, and can be applied to interior and exterior metal wall panel and ceiling systems.

Designed by Pure+Freeform founder Will Pilkington and creative director Geoffrey Hahn, many of the finishes were inspired by ancient objects. These include: Blue Rust, combining rust, purple and blue tones, was inspired by the Beverly Pepper sculpture installation outside of the Ara Pacis in Rome; and Parisian Rust, combining the pink, rose and blue tones, inspired by an 18th-century manuscript of corten in Paris.

Additional finishes include: Deco Bronze, a clear coat finish including a gloss matte, and has a distinct art deco feel complemented by a distressed look; Tempest Patina, a gloss matte finish; and Vintage Nickel, a clear coat aluminum finish including a top coat layer of matte silver.
