When we design a wardrobe we try to combine the advantages of the industrial design, such as maximum functionality, attention to details and well-organized internal equipment, with our original aesthetic research.
Each wardrobe is unique for us: it has to be designed in order to respond to clients’ needs and habits, because a customized wardrobe is an experience to live and develop more than a standard object to buy. We take care of all the stages of the creation process personally: from the design to the delivery and assembly.
Our best-seller kind of closet is the reclaimed wood wardrobe built using reclaimed spruce boards only which we can paint with colors or leave it in its natural shade.
This kind of wood is a very raw material which we refurbish in order to make it stable, almost smooth and safe (we eliminate all the sprinters and parts that might scratch.
It is important to understand that the beauty of the reclaimed spruce boards are their imperfection, irregularity and diversity (none of the boards is identical to other, this is its main characteristic).
An alternative to the wardrobe entirely made with recycled wood can be a mix of new and reclaimed solid wood.
The structure can be made using open pore painted oak wood (in this case we chose grey color but the tone can be chosen among the RAL colors) and the doors and fronts of drawers with recycled wood alternated with solid new wood new in its natural shade.
Our wardrobes, which are handcrafted and handmade, are 100% customizable. The first step for us is to understand all the functions that the wardrobe must have: this allow us to design a fully customized wardrobe.
Once defined this, we move on to the customization step by the creation of a first 3D project, without taking into account colors, materials, only paying attention to the structure and the organization of the internal space (numbers of doors, drawers, etc.)
Then we try to find together with the customer an aesthetic reference, taking inspiration from our already designed contemporary wardrobes or sideboards (yes, because the design of a closet is very similar to sideboards’ one). In this step we decide the colors, materials and finishes of it.
Thereby we have a first complete project that allows us to give a quotation and define the delivery time. The first project and quotation are for free.
Customization involves not only dimensions but also the possibility of choosing materials, internal organization, shape and functionality.
A wardrobe can become a characterizing element of a room and also become a partition between one space and another, and can be a part of the living room furniture.
In this case the Arch. Nicola Saraceno has designed an entirely solid wood wardrobe in which one of the doors is actually a door that delimits the sleeping area and that allows you to continue wardrobes and the materials chosen for the room also in the corridor.
Nature is a furniture series we designed using only solid wood (old and new) left in its natural tone.
The natural nuances of the woods allow us to play, creating geometric colored patterns without intervening on the wood adding water colors.
Also the Nature wardrobe takes up the concept of using natural wood only both for the structure and the doors and drawers.
Each of our wardrobes is handmade, without the use of CNC machines, which allows you to customize every wardrobe in detail (not only in the sizes but also in the types of wood to use and the chromatic yokes to recreate).
The doors of a wardrobe can be made by combining different materials: the contrasts create a game of light and shadow, old and new, hot and cold. For this reason in some cases we mix iron and oak, in others we combine a white lacquering with reclaimed woods.
We use these combinations in cupboards, Pupazzi, wall system and are visible by browsing our website. A wide range of possibilities to harmonize the doors with the already existing furniture and tones of the room
When the project is finished we are really at the beginning of the whole process of designing a wardrobe. The research of materials is a very important step: an ancient door, an old solid wood table, an oxidized metal sheet. After this step we have to decide how to combine these different materials. The hole of a key, a grain, a spot, a hinge: the composition is subject to some constraint details such as the dimensions of the chosen boards, their thickness, their durability.
The possibility of designing a wardrobe from scratch, without pre-constructed modules, gives us the possibility of building something that can perfectly meet the needs of space and customers.
If you need a lot of space but are afraid to weigh down the room with a huge closed wardrobe, an option can be to alternate closed parts with open ones to store books, objects or lamps.
Per realizzare le ante in legno di recupero utilizziamo principalmente due sistemi costruttivi: il primo consiste nel realizzare un telaio in abete di recupero e pannelli interni con tavole antiche dalle patine colorate. Il secondo consiste nell’utilizzare i vecchi pannelli da cantiere restaurati, tenuti al loro colore originale, leggermente sbiancati o colorati.
Our catalogue has to be taken as a guide among our creations, ideas and kinds of solutions for decorating your home. They are a sort of family albums which show all the furniture designed and built along the years.
You can use it as an inspirational idea and move from it towards your custom-made and personalized furniture.
You can mix the ingredients as you like it: shapes, materials, dimensions, woods, reclaimed or new solid wood. This is the starting point which leads you to your customized handmade furniture!
And then… we do the rest!
First of all we create a 3D project which gives you an idea of the result. From this step we start to modify the project as you suggest. We continue until we don’t reach your ideal furniture!
