Recently the zinc started showing up where you least expect it: as a cover material in kitchens and bathrooms, creatively reinvented in the form of home furniture and everyday objects, and even used in flooring. This material, which was once wrongly considered as mediocre and mainly appreciated for its weathertight integrity and tightness, now triumphantly comes back in many interior designs, and it never tiresome thanks to the countless shades and a charm which is always elegant and discreet. New or recovered, lacquered, aged, coloured or raw, the zinc can show ever different facets, perfect for any context and application. This book will make you discover the great richness of this material through a brief overview of its story and its peculiar characteristics, and also provides advice on maintenance. Let yourself be inspired by the 30 and more creative projects of this book, ranging from ideas for recycling objects of different origin and decorations for interiors, outdoors or gardens under the banner of functionality and style.
