Interior design with copper
Copper offers designers a wealth of mechanical and aesthetic qualities that have made it a mainstay of interior design and creative innovation for centuries.
Copper is an excellent material for interior design and the creation of home accessories. It offers endless possibilities for working, either in its pure state or through its alloys such as brass and bronze. Highly malleable, ductile and durable, it provides an appealing chromatic look, thanks to its wide palette ranging from red to brown to green: with gold, it is the unique coloured metal.Its strong identity and multi-millennial tradition are added to its aesthetic and technical potential; so architects and contemporary designers like it and create avant-garde items.
In addition, copper is 100% recyclable and highly durable, so its use completely meets the requirements of eco-compatibility, nowadays a key issue in the choice of environmental- and health-friendly materials.
Copper home decor items such as table tops, room decorations, art, chairs, frames, lamps, handles, wall radiators, curtains, plates, taps, heaters, pots and kitchen design components… The beauty of copper accessories is exploited for many items of furniture already present in homes.
A greener, healthier and more sustainable future relies on the use of copper
When it comes to sustainable development, the production of copper is an important part of t
he story, but it represents only one chapter in a much larger book.
The additional chapters show unequivocally how copper is
making a positive impact on sustainable development. Through the programmes of the European Copper Institute and the Copper Alliance, the copper industry is making a positive impact on areas of critical societal concern, such as energy efficiency and security, climate change mitigation, public health, food supply, green building and more.
On average, less than five tonnes of CO2 are emitted to produce one tonne of copper. However, because of copper’s inherent high efficiency in conductive applications,
between 100 and 7,500 tons of CO2 emissions can be reduced—a mitigation factor of up to 1,500 to one. By 2030, copper could reduce the world’s carbon footprint by 16%.
Beyond the Sustainable Development Goals, the copper industry in Europe is also making an important contribution to the broader economic, social and environmental sustainability of the EU.
