Bespoke handcast metalwork
Indigo Furniture’s metalwork are commissioned handle, knob and hinge designs cast in Iron.
EXACTING PATTERN MAKERS DETAIL
Created by a father and son team using bespoke moulds commissioned by Indigo’s creative team. Form meets function with resilient designs, inspired by Britain’s engineering heritage.
Established handle silhouettes such as the Cannonball and Knob are given the Indigo design edge; expect a distinct, somewhat textured patina achieved through an oil quench.
HAND CAST IN IRON
Created to Indigo’s exacting patternmakers design; handles, knobs, hinges, wheels and brackets are cast using a gravity process, in a preheated sandcast mold in temperatures exceeding 1000 ºC.
Handcast in Iron, Indigo metalwork is designed to match the aesthetic of each piece. During the finishing process metalwork is tumbled with iron shot to remove burrs and residual elements of the casting process.
Each one is handbuffed with Gun Oil and attached to the furniture with ¾” Gun Metal Blue, slotted screws.
ROBUST WHEELS, BRACING METALWORK
Tasked with the creation of the hardware for Indigo’s innovative Cart Coffee Table the team looked to an original factory cart – a design used throughout the Industrial Revolution to transport rolls of cloth, timber and finished goods across the factory floor.
A pair of robust wheels and a smaller set of delightful ‘Pepper pot’ wheels are complemented with bracing metalwork, finished with unique Indigo branding.
“I was blown away when I first saw The Cart Coffee Table online which prompted a drive from Kent to the showroom to see it in the flesh…all the pieces we chose look fantastic in our new home and we have even had a friend make the trip to buy the same coffee table as they couldn’t resist it. Thanks so much.”
