Precious boxes for precious objects

  • • Furio handcrafts beautiful wooden boxes for collectors
  • • He uses only natural materials to avoid any danger to the items
  • • Orders for his boxes come from all over the world

A former manager of a do-it-yourself store with an innate talent for woodworking, a few years ago Furio Troiano decided to leave his job to focus entirely on the creation of bespoke wooden boxes. Thanks to his commitment, precision and passion, he gained an international reputation among collectors of any kind. The world of collectors is all about obsessions and Furio knows them all, in order to meet their requirements with his precious, handcrafted boxes – British collectors like them in mahogany, with green, round-shaped upholstery, North Americans want them red or blue, while, for the French, the velvet inside must be rigorously blue. But it’s not just about aesthetics: the materials and glues used to craft the box are key to ensure safety and perfect preservation of the precious collected items.
