Agostino Ramelli

Agostino Ramelli was a master of Renaissance mechanics and a celebrated artist of the 16th century. His works were highly respected and hugely influential to later generations of mechanical engineers and machinists. His intricate designs were often ahead of their time, as they contained components that were not seen in other mechanical devices of his era. He is credited with inventing the bevel gear mechanism, which is still used in many machines and devices today. He was a highly skilled draughtsman and is known for his detailed and accurate drawings of his designs. His impressive ‘Book Wheel’, or ‘Rotating Bookstand’, was the precursor to the modern day carousel shelf. He also designed the ‘Windsor Chair’ and the ‘Cagliostro Table’, both of which have been widely copied and admired by many. Agostino Ramelli was a visionary who was able to combine his creative flair with his technical knowledge to create remarkable and innovative mechanical devices. His works represent a significant milestone in the history of design and art, and serve as a reminder of the importance of combining creative flair with technical knowledge to create innovative and beautiful objects.
