Oikos Paints Vintage Metal surface material has been created to respond to performance, budget and flexibility. The excellence in craftsmanship makes it possible to create new custom surfaces not just for walls but also for art installations in public spaces for interior architecture.. The vintage metal has been used in the renovation of the Hilton Milan lobby as a demonstration of Italian craftsmanship and innovation in the heart of Milan. The blend of metallic recycled powders and plaster creates unique surfaces that reflect design concepts. The finished material is soft to the touch, scratch and light resistant, and can be applied off-site so the installation can be delivered on-site ready to be fitted. It is sustainable, made from a waste product from metal rather than metal sheets; it is light and economical and it can be customised infinitely.
