Basalte Presents New Finishes for Sentido and Deseo Touch-Sensitive Switches

At Light+Building 2016, Basalte presented the new line of finishes for its touch-sensitive switches, inspired by the popular fer forgé. This new combination of precious metals in a trendy, handcrafted finish enables interior designers to add Basalte as a true design statement in their projects.

Basalte is proud to introduce its new range of finishes for Sentido and Deseo. It is inspired by the popular fer forgé finish, which is hand carved and made in Belgium. The new finishes appeal to today’s trends and taste, ranging from a subtle black and dark grey to the classic bronze and sparkling rosé finish.

This artisanal yet sophisticated look blends in nicely with the interior or can stand out as a true design statement. These novelties are added to the existing range of design switches in aluminium, bronze or glass.Lead designer Klaas Arnout: “Sentido and Deseo are the eye-catchers, ever since we launched them. With the new fer forgé finishes, we appeal to today’s design trends, whilst still accentuating the switches’ authentic and timeless design.”

Basalte develops design products for the smart home, combining high-grade materials with an unequalled comfort in use and functionalities. In the past few years, the touch-sensitive Sentido and Deseo switches have already won multiple international design awards like the Red Dot and German Design Award, setting a new standard in the industry.
