Staff is a term of Architecture.
The word Staff would derive from German staffieren (to furnish, to decorate) or from old French estofer (fabric). To restore their apartments destroyed and in spite of the impoverishment of their customers after the French revolution, the decorators turn to materials less expensive than the Stuc. It is there that staff appears thanks to the Mézier French who towards 1850 with the idea to carry out a first Corniche prefabricated armed with a Hessian. Consequently the use of staff develops quickly until reaching its apogee at the beautiful time. In addition to the interior architecture, the restoration, the Moulding sculptor, the reproduction of original works, the realization of industrial prototypes, staff is sometimes used in the cinema or stage set.
The ornaments of interior architecture out of staff are manufactured out of plaster in moulds inside which one applies filaments of Sisal, of Jute or Chanvre according to the sinuosities, hollow and covered model. Once dried, it is posed easily using small points of Acier, by joining or sealing.
This technical process gave its name to a not very widespread profession: Staffeur.
