Riva1920 participates in the Exhibition Homi, dedicated to the house, the person, its styles and spaces that take place every year in Milan at Rho from September 27th to 30th.
The brand has contributed with an exhibition whose protagonist was the solid cedar wood, advanced materials of production by Riva1920, which is distinguished by its ability to give truly unprecedented olfactory experience.
The exhibition space was divided into two parts: in a part excelled pieces in natural cedar, in the other part some products made with the new Vulcan black finishing, a methodology of work that draws inspiration from ancient Japanese technique based on the carbonization of wood at a superficial level.
This process is called Shou Sugi Ban and it is inspired by the ancient Japanese techniques involving the carbonization of the wooden structures of the houses made of cedar wood, as a natural remedy against moths, mildew and fire.
Among the exhibits pieces at the stand there was a table four meters long made from a trunk section with iron base model Sky, some benches model Molletta design by Baldessari & Baldessari and some stools Clessidra designed by Mario Botta and some stools Astrati designed by Michele de Lucchi.
Then followed by the iconic Julia the small rocking horse designed by Pininfarina and Venus the stool designed by Victoria Azadinho Bocconi.
