Designer

I was greatly inspired visiting Riva1920 and Lamborghini headquarters / factories. 

Seeing state of the art robotics combined meticulously with hand craftsmanship really shaped my ideas for a collaborative line of furniture. 

Italy is a perpetual farrago of ideas, concepts, truisms, hand craftsmanship and progressive manufacturing. Italy understood that Design is a public subject 75 years ago, long before the world accepted it. Without companies like Riva1920 and Lamborghini design would have never become ubiquitous, omnipresent, experimental yet of the highest quality. 

The passion from both companies with their desirous need for innovation and beauty inspired me to focus on minimal simple yet a sensual collection. The furniture collection takes influence from the timeless quality of Riva1920 with slight aerodynamic forms of the Lamborghini cars and their progressive exceptional beauty. You can see a sense of fluidity and a melding of organic and pure form in the furniture yet comfort is never sacrificed.

Maintenance

Camoscio is a natural full-grain leather retouched with a nubuck effect and matt finish. The products used for tanning and finishing CAMOSCIO leather comply with European standards. The sober, simple range of colours are durable and long lasting. It has been pre-treated with water-repellent materials, giving it a certain resistance to liquids. It is, however, advisable, in case of liquid spills, to remove the liquid immediately with a dry cloth and dab it with absorbent paper before the liquid is absorbed by the leather. Do not use abrasive tools or chemical detergents which could permanently damage the surface and the quality of the leather. It is also very important not to expose leather products to direct sunlight.
