Nicolas Vitellaro has not always been an artist-blacksmith. After working in business for more than 20 years, this art and sculpture enthusiast finally decided to devote himself fully to what he has always loved: iron work and recycled materials such as metal, zinc and concrete. In 2005, he set up his own company “En Fer et Déco” and began to create everyday objects (lamps, suspensions, vases, fountains, arbors, rods, shelves...) by recovering mechanical parts and using them in different ways. In this way he manages to transform for example an industrial refrigerator motor pulley or a wheel from a forklift into a lamp base.

If ironwork is his chosen field, Nicolas Vitellaro goes even further in his creations. Multidisciplinary, he is also dedicated to light sculpture by his choice of bulbs, their orientation, intensity or even the creation of a lampshade, and designs many interiors for verandas and kitchens. After participating for two years in Marseille’s craft market, today Nicolas Vitellaro presents his work at Drôle d’Endroit, a restaurant in Aix-en-Provence he completely designed, and which is really worth the trip!
