Castagno18 - the valet
The piece of furniture to neatly place your shirt, jacket, and pants. Its shape is given by wooden slats of different sizes that create a very simple but intriguing game of geometries. The structure is entirely made of chestnut wood, neither screws nor glue are used, the joints between the elements are all made with dovetails joints carved into the mass.
The production chain of the entire Castagno18 collection is very narrow: from cutting wood to creating furniture, everything is done in Ticino within a few kilometers. The chain thus conceived enhances the local wood, and the wealth that derives from it remains for the small working realities of the canton of Ticino, helping them not only economically but also in building a cultural identity specific to the region in which they are located.
