Designer

Pininfarina Extra, is part of Pininfarina, the internationally known design house, whose history dates back to 1930 when it was founded by Battista Panin-Farina, who began the most famous car designer of his age. La Cisitalia 202 (1947), for example, was the first and the unique car to enter in the permanent collection of MoMa in New York in 1961. Moreover, until today, more than 100 produced Ferrari were designed by Pininfarina.

In 1986, the third generation of Pininfarina family founded Pininfarina Extra Srl to extend the company competence outside of the car sector. In more than 25 years of activity, Pininfarina Extra developed more than 500 projects under the direction of his president and CEO, Paolo Pininfarina (now president of Pininfarina Group), and gained his own trade mark and a clear identity.

Today the society works in many different sectors where products designed Pininfarina are well known in the most important international markets. The company aims to mix the most advanced aspects of scientific, technological and engineering research with an aesthetics concept in all our daily products.

The principal activity of the company are Industrial design (electronics, sporting goods, furniture, machinery and equipment, consumer goods, graphic design and packaging), architecture and interiors (residential, hospitality, sports and commercial) and the “Transportation design” (Yacht, planes , private jet  and people movers).

Maintenance

USEFULL INSTRUCTION FOR SOLID CEDARWOOD ARTICLES

These articles are entirely made in solid scented cedar wood. Any movement in the wood, little cracks and changes that might occur over time cannot be considered grounds for complaint as they are due not to imperfections in the material but rather to a natural settling of the wood

in reaction to various environmental conditions.
Similarly the possible appearance of marks or little patches of mould on the surface of the product is a perfectly normal reaction by solid wood in particular to prolonged periods of storage in transport packing.

Should such problems occur we ask you to undertake the following actions using the maintenance kit:

1) use the brush supplied to remove any traces of mould.
2) wash the parts previously worked on with water.
3) leave the article to dry in a dry and well aired place.

A typical characteristic of the items realized in solid cedar is the possible leakage of the resin that is naturally contained inside the wood, especially on the bottom of the product. Please be informed that, in order to avoid problems of spots or absorption of resin contained into solid cedar, we kindly suggest You not to locate items in cedarwood on carpets or soft surfaces which do not allow the ventilation of the bottom part of the item, especially in the first months from the purchasing. We suggest to keep them in a dry and good ventilated place.

Natural Living

Each purchaser that buys a Riva 1920 product will receive as a gift a small plant, upon request, to return the favour to nature that originally produced the wood used for the production of the piece of furniture purchased.
