Quattroventi is a family-run company which, on 12th December 2014, celebrated its 45th birthday and year of presence in the area of Corno di Rosazzo.
Renato and Ranieri Costantini wanted to set up their own business aimed at offering special and particular wood processing systems to all companies which were quickly expanding in the so-called “Chair Triangle” in the Sixties.
The two brothers’ wives and children joined them in 1985 and started a professional growth path that led them, after a decade, to take over their father’s business in order to implement a “generation renewal”.
In early 2000 the company decided to enhance the quality of its offer introducing two interpoled 6-axis machining centres which increased the possible wood processing methods, from chair and table manufacturing elements to carved elements for indoor and outdoor furniture. The workshop of Quattroventi has got other traditional wood processing machines such as several types of milling machines, sanders and contouring machines.
Today production is both on account for manufacture and on consignment, especially addressed to high-end markets with products design by world-known architects. Products range from religious, naval and beauty centre furniture to indoor and outdoor furniture, toys for children and various objects. Quattroventi, thanks to its expertise and professionalism, operates both for contractors and private customers resorting to a wide range of wood species in order to provide clients with refined and quality products.
Quattroventi obtained the ISO9001 quality certification and is FSC® and PEFC™ certified, a guarantee that wood comes from responsibly-managed forests.
If you have an idea in mind, finding the right designer is essential. They will help you explore, develop and refine your idea further as well as think through the different components involved in the making.
Once you have researched and refined your idea, it will need to be visually presented. A designer will help you visualise your idea and explore various designs in order to find the right design or build a range of products.
Often, as part of the process of turning an idea to reality some precision is required. Technical drawings allow you to specify the requirements of your design and helps the manufacturer produce your design correctly.

Researching and sourcing the right materials for your design idea is essential. Some factories can provide materials, and sometimes you will need to source your own materials separately.
Even the simplest of ideas often need to be tested to make sure all components and design specifications are functional and harmonious in design. A sample is a prototype of your idea. Usually samples are made by hand by a master craftsman in order to create a perfect sample for future production. For this reason often samples are charged at a different rate to production. A spec is a blueprint of the design listing all materials used throughout the design in order to ensure consistency of future production.
To produce products in volume at a fast rate and reasonable cost, a tooling will need to be created. Tooling depends on the product type and minimums. Costs for these will vary accordingly.
“Production run” is often referred to producing more than a couple of products of the same design at the same time. Depending on the size and set up of the factories, their minimal production orders may vary from a few to hundreds of units made at the same time.
