Riva 1920 Briccole Project

Working with Riva 1920, an Italian furniture maker, Studio Fantastico pays tribute to the city of Venice with the Briccole Project. The story is two fold – first, Studio Fantastico investigates the life of wood, using degradation as part of the aesthetic. Secondly, the intent is to draw inspiration from Briccole, the markers that assist in the navigation of Venetian waters.  The architectural objects are rudimentary, and as such are rarely created with an intentional aesthetic. Studio Fantastico celebrates the intrinsic quality of materials and also the context of their original usage.

The project launched at Salone del Mobile in Milan.
