CABINET MAKING EXCELLENCE

Since 1973

THREE GENERATIONS

For three generations in GIOVANNI VISENTIN creativity, care and mastery have been melting together to boost the gesture of the hand and to give life to unique and unrepeatable pieces.
Every detail is meticulously taken care of, from the purchase of selected timber, till the hand finishing of each individual item, up to the decorations. The whole production, from design to finishing, is developed and followed in the workshops owned by Visentin family, from manual operations to the most advanced five-axis processings, utilizing today’s advanced technologies.

Family

A BIG UNITED FAMILY

It was in 1973 when GIOVANNI VISENTIN founded his company near Bassano del Grappa, in an area already well known for the mastery in the production of high quality furniture. Giovanni inherited the wise knowledge of local cabinet-making from his father and became its custodian, transmitting a taste of unique craftsmanship and quality to his production. GIOVANNI VISENTIN’S history is the tale of a family, that made its raison of being a passion, its tradition an experience, its real heritage to be preserved a job, to be shared and enriched over the time with imagination and elegance.

Craftmanship

THE WORKING PROCESSES

SIZING AND PLANING

These operations are strictly hand-made, by expert artisans with an high level of knowledge of the materials. A job that puts the craftsman’s skill and the wood in close contact: there are still no technologies that can displace these skills.
This job requires great attention, all the wooden species are different in their qualities and defects, it is required to know them and to know how to work them. Each piece of wood is different in its processing and requires a sensibility that only the experience and the human hands could have, in order to enhance the beauty of the raw materials, using the right force and following the right direction, along the grain of the wood.

THICK VENEER

A “noble” alternative to the thin veneer, the thick veneer differs in the thickness of the wood that is glued on the panel. This ancient process has been evolved, thanks to technology, into modern veneer, which is characterized by wooden sheets with a thickness of 0.6 mm.
Giovanni Visentin, faithful to its origins and traditions, continues to use the thick veneer in its items, guaranteeing thicknesses of the materials higher than the ones ensured by today’s market standards.

CARVING

When we talk about carving, we immediately think about an ancient art and so, even today, in Giovanni Visentin the ancient knowledge and tastes are kept alive.
The close link with the world of art and antiques in Venetian area has allowed the collection of numerous samples and shapes that are re-proposed in current products.
The rest of the work is done by wise hands of skilled craftsmen, who, piece by piece, shape the different components of precious furniture.

ANTIQUING AND FINISHING

An extraordinary artisanal technique, that GIOVANNI VISENTIN knows in all its secrets.
The antiquing makes possible to reproduce the patina of ancient time, reviving it on the surface of wood: a work that must be carried out strictly by hand, because only the gestures of skilled craftsmen could take action on the noblest woods, to enhance their veins and to reproduce the irregular effect that reminds the one of surfaces designed by time with precise touches.

Inlay

ON ANDREA PALLADIO' S TRAIL

GIOVANNI VISENTIN skilfully uses the ancient inlay technique. A type of decoration of which our craftsmen are masters: invented in Italy in the fourteenth century, it then spread throughout Europe. The Venetian school is among the most famous and the GIOVANNI VISENTIN’s carpenters, thanks to founder’s teachings, are the heirs of this complex and fascinating technique, which consists in the composition of geometric figures and designs through the perfect combination and joint of wooden pieces of different species. The careful and in-depth study of the antiques, from which we are inspired, allows us to replicate today unique color effects and designs of the past, keeping unaltered the constructive characteristics of the antique furniture. Every inlay gives life to unique and inimitable pieces.
