Fe3O4, a series of products as the result of a material research into bluing metal.


Bluing is a process in which steel is heated up to then be quenched in oil, in order to oxidize the exterior resulting in an outer layer of the black oxide of iron, Fe3O4. This layer has a blue-black appearance and a protective finish.


After bluing, the tubes are partially polished in a lathe to create a contrast between polished and blued metal.

The series exists out of different sized metal tubes, combined with strip metal to maintain a recognizable shape language, a clear finish is applied as a protective coating.
