'Le Briccole di Venezia' by Riva 1920

We all remember Riva’s beautiful giant ‘Kauri’ table made from ancient timber. At this year’s imm cologne the Italian manufacturer presented an equally poetic project: ‘Le Briccole di Venezia’. 22 renowned designers and artists were asked to work the ‘Briccole’, posts made of chestnut oak arising from the Venetian lagoon, into objects. One impressive example is the table by Matteo Thun. The massive wooden planks corroded by tides turn a simple everyday object into a narrative piece of history.
