“As someone who’s lived and traveled throughout Italy and who has had some memorable times in Venice I felt honored to take part in a project with such a historical significance. When Riva1920 approached me about Project Venice I immediately began thinking back to my days of studying in Italy and my time in Venice and also thinking of the importance of change while embracing the future and exploiting the past and its materials for all that it’s worth. I began sketching shapes derived from the language of gondolas, soft organic forms stretched into points connected by the contrasting geometric severity of connecting beams. Riva1920 selected the sketch they felt was the most intriguing and we developed it further, printing out a few different scale models and enhancing the form as the project progressed.  The result – one blob-like shape is pulled and stretched to create a backrest while another is extended to become a table surface with the briccola the beam connecting them”.

Structure finishing:

Cedar/Briccola

Size:

285 x 119 x h 38.6/92.8 cm

Riva

Once upon a time, it was 1920, in Brianza, and in his tiny workshop in Cantù a serene craftsman works wood day after day, with such love and respect. It’s an art form, simple furniture of a refined elegance. That woodworker was Nino Romano.

The years go by, and the work keeps going on, with more and more dedication, constantly enhancing the manufacturing process.

For the first time in 1992, Riva 1920 presents its first collection at the ‘Salone del Mobile’ international fair in Milan. In this very moment, Riva 1920 becomes known in Italy and abroad, in an inevitable success.

Entrepreneurial intuition, collaborations with world-renowned architects and the fourth Riva generation joining the company as close-knit as ever, all this has started the evolution towards new marketplaces, new horizons while fully respecting the company’s philosophy, which combines functionality, aesthetic shapes, without forgetting the importance of a healthy and sustainable living. The company introduces, in addition to the American reforestation wood, wood of reuse, such as the thousand-year-old Kauri from New Zealand, the Briccole from the Venice Lagoon and the Cedar from Lebanon; as a matter of fact, wood is a renewable yet not endless resource.

In 2010 the suggestive Riva Center building comes to completion, entirely covered with larch wood, with a 1200-square-meter Showroom that exalts the essence and uniqueness of the products, and with a first floor dedicated to the Museum of Wood with upwards of 4000 items on display.

Riva 1920, the love for nature, the search for a high quality of living, combined with tradition, culture, creativity, innovation, artisanal and technological, give birth on a daily basis to something special, unique and timeless: such is the furniture signed by Riva 1920.

Riva 1920, truly natural wood; Riva 1920 the guarantee of a product completely Made in Italy.
