Trees ravaged by time and water.  An architecture placed between the sky and the sea. Sculptures of an imperfect beauty.  Nature and artifice. Riva1920 invited me to bestow on these spectral trunks a second lease of life. A wonderful challenge. I tried to imagine how many memories, thoughts, fantasies and dreams have drifted past them in their time. These are the little objects I have concealed in the wood. It is a gesture who neither superimposes the new not cancels the old: it simply adds other lives and interweaves them with the essence of the briccole. A little goldfish, a good-luck charm of bright blue glass, a Japanese cat, a little Yi Xing teapot , a little Chinese pumpkin, a big shell, a ganesh made of rag, a big lump of Murano glass, a purse with a panda’s face, a turquoise egg-box, a ring of beads, a red cornet-shaped charm, an Agatha Christie book, a pair of sunglasses, a packet of seeds, a little bottle of Parma violets, a box of Leone pastilles, an ex-voto… Many objects have floated past the briccole. …Crumbs and things collected with unhurried calm.

Base finish:

Iron natural color

Structure finishing:

Briccola

Size:

245 x 50 x h 174 cm

 

Any movements, cracks and changes in the condition of the wood are an essential feature of these furnishings and are due to the natural settlement and the different environmental conditions. It is its own and essential characteristic synonymous with originality and authenticity.

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.
