Stool made from a single block of aromatic cedar that reproduces the physiognomy of a heart.

The products are made from completely natural leather and hand-finished without the addition of any treatment. Movements, cracks and changes in the appearance of the wood are intrinsic characteristics of these items and result from the natural settlement and diverse environmental conditions.

Designer

Veneziano+Team design studio was created in 2008 after the meeting between Gianni Veneziano and Luciana Di Virgilio. A team of creative professionals and 'conceptual thinkers’ with specific and complementary skills composes the studio. They interact throughout different design processes, such as restructuring, interior design, industrial design, graphic design, exhibition design, communication and management design. The studio explores several fields of design, aiming to reach final solutions of strong emotional impact. Particular focus is devoted to integrated communication, in a unique process that includes creativity, passion, technology and strategic thinking. The philosophy of the studio assigns to the concept of ‘function’ the responsibility of defining shapes and structures in a simple and intuitive way: maintaining a highly artistic approach, opened to experimentation and contamination, a mix between experience and innovation. The work of the studio has been published on some of the most important design magazines and during local and international exhibitions. Moreover, the role of curators of exhibitions has to be highlighted, such as ‘ Il Segno dei Designer ’ (‘The Sign of Designers’) for Triennale of Milan. Gianni Veneziano donated those works to Triennale Design Museum, so that they have become part of its permanent collection. In June 2013, another project of Gianni Veneziano, Daysign, was on display at the Triennale Design Museum, and then they lent theri name to a new TV show. On air in prime time on Rai 5, Daysign hosted Luciana and Gianni as outstanding presenters to address art and social issues.

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.
