De Castelli

The entire De Castelli production is distinguished for the finest quality of its construction, expressed in the meticulous attention to details and the handcrafting of all the finishing and decorating work.


Simple, rigorous shapes, hard and cold, a bit like metal itself. Precise shapes which intersect to create complex decorative forms, recalling a humbler time when decoration was more rigorous, polite, even formal. A time when simple shapes were enriched by design. Design as decoration, becoming a fusion of reality. Here noble materials like brass are punch cut and hand brushed. A myriad of tiny pieces is assembled by hand forming a mosaic of unique chiaroscuro effects. The metal shell is accompanied by the coloured and polished lacquered wood on the inside, while two small drawers finished in hand-stitched leather complete the ensemble.
