Reinterpreted materials: 11 new metal skins by Pure+Freeform

Designed by Will Pilkington and Geoffrey Hahn, the finishes were inspired by reinterpreting other materials through metal.

Eleven new metal skins were launched by Pure+Freeform, a bespoke metal company based in New York City that creates custom metal paneling systems. Part of the studio’s new Signature Series collection, the finishes range in color and feel, and can be applied to the interior and exterior metal wall panel and ceiling systems.

Designed by founder Will Pilkington and creative director Geoffrey Hahn, many of the finishes were inspired by the duo’s interest in reinterpreting other materials through metal.

Neo Spritz channels the brick red and sea blue undertones of terracotta; Sagg Shell is a streaked, porcelain white shade inspired by seashells encountered on the beaches of Sagaponack, NY; Rusty Stripe has a gloss matte that provides dimensionality inspired by different rust colors of corten; Urban Cement has a super-matte finish to create the appearance of traditional cement with the structural abilities of metal; Frozen Hairline has layers of pearlized metallic zinc interlay with ultra fine hairlines of heather gray; Silvered Wood has rose and yellow gold pearl that reflect and diffuse light in ways not seen in natural metals; and Crystal Storm has an appearance that varies from patinated gray metal to a galvanized blue.
