Riva 1920 furniture
From 1989 onwards, a single, unswerving principle has guided Riva1920's work: produce furniture conceived by great designers, using only solid wood from sustainable forests and natural finishes to create a natural home suffused with the scents of wood, olis and wax, and offer you a completely Italy made product.
Kauri, millennial wood
Millennial Kauri is regarded as the rarest wood in the world since it is available only in a restricted area of New Zealand and despite its millennial life under the mud once extracted it is not petrified nor rotten hence easily malleable just as freshly chopped timber.
Its extraordinary feature is that it is extracted from the soil. In fact, these enormous trees, whose trunk can reach 5/6 metres, were torn down by huge catastrophes and remained buried under the mud for 50.000 years.
Exported from New Zealand to Europe by The WoodMine, Kauri can come back to life and become a timeless work of art by the skilled manufacture of Riva 1920.
The WoodMine cares for digging out, sorting and cutting the wood pieces, Riva 1920 cares for the rest of the process, i.e. manufacture and distribution of prestige furniture with the cooperation of the best designers in the world, e.g. Renzo Piano, Pininfarina, Thun and Norman Foster just to name a few.
