Aldo Bernardi is well known for his exceptional living finish - an "aged" patina on metals that changes as it is impacted by specific environmental "agents" and atmospheric conditions over time.

The specifications in catalogs and on tear sheets detail available finishes for any particular fixture.

For significant quantities, Aldo Bernardi is open to creating custom finishes.

Product Specifications

While we do our utmost to ensure that you always have the most accurate specification information on the products, please note that we are not responsible for any errors listed in the materials. Due to conversions from the metric system and the handcrafted nature of the lighting all weights and measurements are close approximations.
