Each single piece of furniture is exclusively made with wood coming from controlled reforestation areas, a daily commitment towards nature and the environment around us, a precious and an inestimable patrimony we want to preserve and safeguard.
Kauri The Lord of the forest
Tane Mahuta in Maori means Millennial Kauri, which is the native biggest and most famous tree
of New Zealand, and also the oldest wood of the world. Grown up in the Jurassic Period these
vegetal giants have been cut down by enormous natural disasters more than 50.000 years ago
thus remained buried under meters of mud and unchanged until our days. Logs up to 70 meters
of length and 9 meters of diameter are brought to light again, which are true natural sculptures
ready to be transformed into unique design pieces.
Briccole Undisputed trademarks of Venice
The Riva1920 intuition of giving a new life to these oak posts was born from the great attention
towards the environment and the ecology. The Briccole are the unquestioned main characters
of Venice, which lead the boats and mark the Lagoon low tide and are periodically replaced due
to wear. Made unique pieces by the industriousness of shipworms, small molluscs, Briccole are
transformed into exclusive pieces of furniture able to convey a special emotion.
Cedarwood Majestic Logs of scented cedarwood
Fallen due to natural events or cut down for
programmed schedule, are the start point for the working process of this precious
wood which is shaped by using CNC machineries with 5- and 6-axis. An innovative
technology which transforms a raw log into a design object with a peculiar and
unmistakable scent, and afterwards is sanded and finished by hand.
