When it carries out its function in the waters of Venice, the Briccola is a light and poetic item, one that reflects into the water a sort of soft elusiveness. Once its primary duty is over, when it is removed from its own “habitat” so to be re-placed, the Briccola becomes nothing more than a pole laying on the ground, where wearing effects and time damage the wood creating a harsh, uneven crust. That wood though, carries with it an important story and it is fascinating the idea of trying to bringing it back to life. In my case, I wanted to obtain a gentle image, turning upside down the hardness of the trunk. The UNICORN, conceived in different forms, is an ironic stool, as if it were a good luck toy. A wooden toy, indeed, primordially-cut, as Geppetto did when he created Pinocchio. A toy for adults, with blue and round eyes made of Murano glass, and the horn made of golden bronze.

Structure finishing:

Briccola

Size:

182 x 58 x h 45/94 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.
