Rivendell Cast Iron/Stainless Steel Ventilation and Plumbing

Real world elements for interior design. Hydrochloric acid wash/rusted cast Iron, Stainless Steel and chrome plated cast iron ventilation and exposed plumbing.

The cast iron arrives brute, takes about 2 weeks to acid wash them before assembly, 3 weeks is better to get a good rusty crust. Then varnish is added to protect the rust layer, making very sure not to scratch the heavy pipe once assembled.

These are not just concept. These were implemented in Puidoux Village, Switzerland at the Moulin de Rivendell ( Rivendell Mill ).
