The artisan

The Castangia joiner's workshop, founded in 1972 by Bernardino Castangia, is specialized in the design and manufacturing of high-quality windows and doors. When he was a boy, his son Maurizio attended the joiner's workshop as an apprentice, getting in touch and learning his trade secrets, and formally becoming the manager of the company in 2008. Under Maurizio’s management, production was expanded and steered towards the creation of furnishings, often collaborating with professionals, such as architects and designers, finding solutions to meet the demands of the market with highly customized solutions.

The collection

The philosophy of the joinery is to satisfy the client by providing custom products, since the earliest stages of design, and high quality manufacturing. Complete furnishings for homes, commercial facilities and accommodation facilities, are made with skill and using selected materials. Custom furniture is the result of the experience gained over time.

The technique

The large joinery is equipped with modern technology that allows an artisan's approach during all manufacturing phases. From the choice of materials to finishing procedures, each work is performed with skilled manufacturing techniques.
