Riva 1920 presents a collaboration with Automobili Lamborghini featuring a new collection of furniture. Tradition, innovation, excellence are at the base of this collaboration between two outstanding Italian companies.The collection was designed by the prominent and internationally renowned designer Karim Rashid, who successfully merged the design aesthetics of Riva 1920 and Lamborghini. Riva 1920 shares the values of Lamborghini’s philosophy: design, innovation, cutting edge technology, emotion, attention to detail but also a strong heritage.
The "Authentic Living" collection is characterized by sinuous and stylish shapes, able to amaze thanks to fine workmanship and the quality of natural and genuine materials, such as solid walnut and leather.
"The passion from Riva 1920 and Lamborghini 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."
