  • A Day in the Life of an Italian Wrought Iron Craftsman | Italia Living
    of an Italian Wrought Iron Craftsman August 2015 By Italia Living Villi Zanini shares a view of what goes into his masterful artistic creations It s important to know that one of the essential characteristics of traditional wrought iron craftsmanship is the design of the work prior to its realization The design is the starting point for everything because it generates an overall aesthetic This phase of the work process has been passed down unaltered and unaffected by the transformation of techniques and technology in the past craftsmen drew a design using chalk on a floor or wall today they make use of rendering techniques and plotters All works must be drawn from large projects such as gates and doors to smaller designs like the wrought iron brackets supporting a wall light or shelf Villi Zanini has condensed their philosophy and art into a video showing a working day in the atelier with his exceptionally talented team Villi Zanini has created exquisite custom work for private residential homes hotels yachts and prestigious buildings all over the world For more info please visit www villizanini it Headquarters Via del lavoro 10 Cornuda Treviso 31041 Italy Tel 39 0423 83139 Related Articles

  • The Beauty of Circular Banisters | Italia Living
    for a wrought iron craftsman Even for Villi Zanini who has designed many banisters for circular staircases When designing a circular wrought iron banister such as a spiral staircase it s like working freehand in three dimensions Unlike stairs with linear steps for which you can simply adhere to the architectural design for circular staircases the banister should be created directly on site in order to be able to adapt it to the wall at every point but this isn t possible Experience is therefore required and extreme precision in taking measurements trying to imagine every single phase from the workmanship to the installation An error of just a few millimetres can ultimately compromise the end result In recent years Villi worked on coming up with and perfecting a method that allows them to work directly from a model of the staircase This method cuts down on production time and costs and the number of visits to the worksite as well as allows Villi Zanini and his team to feel secure that the end result will work out fine and to the clients extreme satisfaction whether on a luxury yacht or in ones home For more info please visit www
