CLESSIDRA (hourglass) is a product born out of Mario Botta’s fertile imagination and wit. The stool is carved out of a single block of scented cedar wood. The solid cedar block, previously squared off, is placed inside a special machine that carves the block around to obtain this highly original shape that almost looks like two hemispheres, one placed upside down over the other. CLESSIDRA stools can also be piled up (upon request): a metal pin can be provided to cross through the centre of each seat so that one stool can be set upon another to create a modern “sculpture” as well as an interesting piece of furniture.

Cedar contract finishing

Volcano cedar 

Bicolor: cedar + volcano cedar

Size:

Ø 39.5 x h 45 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.
