While some might consider iron charmingly retro, but hardly a material to be considered when designing a contemporary dwelling many, particularly in Spain where it is valued for its beauty and durability, are still very much enamoured of its charms.

Iron has been employed by architects and engineers for centuries, but the increasing popularity of steel gradually led to it being phased out for most major projects.

Iron has been employed by architects and engineers for centuries, but the increasing popularity of steel gradually led to it being phased out for most major projects. However, the appeal of iron as a material from which to fashion balustrades and rejas (bars for fencing and windows) has ensured that it is still very much in demand by homeowners in Italy and Spain.

San Marino based company, Modus, specialises in manufacturing iron products and the uninitiated might be surprised to learn the scope of the options available: from elaborately crafted panels and exquisite balustrades to light fittings and table bases, the Modus creative team has the capability and imagination to sprinkle a little Italian finesse over the most commonplace household fixture or fitting.

Every Modus product is covered by the company’s certificate of quality, guaranteeing that the highest of standards govern all aspects, from production to customer service and technical assistance.

Modus is proud of its association with the Italian Museum of Cast Iron in Longiano, which has proved an invaluable source of information and advice about the design and manufacture of authentic 19th and 20th century processes and styles.

The fact that this company is so dedicated to furthering the production of superior Italianate ironware is the main reason that Estomar91 is so happy to be associated with it.
