Designer

Born in 1989, she graduated in Architecture at the Polytechnic of Bari, town where she lives and works. During her studies, she learnes the importance of history and its reflection on today's world. She discovers the passion for the detail, the awareness of balance and harmony of shapes, the difference between dwelling and living. Passionate about fashion, handicraft, design and architecture, she puts high expectations on the functional beauty of things, but the recurring disappointment has led her to find her personal dimension in creating and knowing how to do it since she was a child. She's creative, curious and sensitive, she likes to test herself, to find new realities and to explore new places; architecture as well as design make her feel completely fullfilled, being, as she considers herself, dynamic and changing, deriving from experimentation and research. As an accurate observer, she is mostly inspired by the surrounding world, the environment, the un contaminated landscape, the urbanized city, the human sensitivity. Her experiences and attachment to nature, sea and beauty made her close to boating and yachts design, which allow her to experience innovative design solutions, combining extreme functionalityand unrestrained luxury.

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.
