History

original compass Historic Period 1627 Description Proportional compasses for measuring the architectural orders according to the proportions of Andrea Palladio, invented by Ottavio Revese Bruti, an architect from Vicenza. Modelled after the geometric and military compass of Galileo Galilei, the instrument is formed of two flat legs and a transverse arc bearing five sets of proportional scales, each dedicated to one of the elements of an architectural order: the arches, architraves, columns, bases, capitals and balusters of the Tuscan, Doric, Ionian, Corinthian and Composite orders. The success of the archisesto among the proportional instruments used by architects was decreed by British authors who, between 1723 and 1761, at the height of the neo-Palladian vogue, published translations and revisions of Bruti’s treatise in honour of the special interest of King George III in architecture and mathematical instruments. In Britain the instrument was known as the architectonic sector. "The Archisesto compass is an instrument that is capable of producing perfect architectural curves, an intriguing function that continues to inspire and challenge our design capabilities at Archisesto Inc." - Giacomo Ferrucci, President.

Giacomo Ferrucci

Native of Lucca, Italy, Giacomo Ferrucci, founder of Archisesto was inspired nearly two decades ago by a family-owned, Tuscan stable built in 1689. "As my parents transformed what was once a bull pen into the villa that is today, I lost myself flipping through the pages of the architectural magazines my mother used for ideas". Ferrucci refined his vision for architecture studying at the University of Florence, while concurrently working under various Italian architects. old house

"Through my years of experience, an in depth knowledge of the industry, I founded Archisesto. My main goal is to achieve the maximum in Italian functionality and style in all the homes and offices I design. I approach each project with the passion, ensuring the best possible products and services step by step from the very first sketch to the execution of the finishing touches".

    “When we bought our house we relied on Archisesto to design our kitchen and make it suitable to our needs. The service provided was exceptional. I needed a functional kitchen (I spend a lot of time there), a kitchen that had lots of storage, and that was sturdy enough to withstand two energetic toddlers. At Archisesto they took notes of all my needs and developed an outstanding product for a reasonable price. We've received a lot of compliments and 7 years later the kitchen still looks brand new. I would recommend Archisesto in a heartbeat.”
