Giovanni Rivadossi Coffee Table in Hand Carved Walnut
Giovanni Rivadossi, coffee table, walnut, Italy, 1970s
An exceptional coffee table, created by Giovanni Rivadossi, who is the sibling of the celebrated sculptor and designer Giuseppe Rivadossi. This piece stands out for its remarkable woodwork craftsmanship. Giovanni would, on occasion, craft furniture pieces in the workshop.
Remarkable about this piece is the hidden storage space that can be accessed through a concealed door panel. The sides embody a striking embossed surface of carved columns. The tabletop owns its intricate appearance due to the use of the end-grain wood technique, resulting in a structure of angular pieces of wood. The graphical visualization is intensified by means of the textured surface that is hand carved by gouge cut, which gives this piece its distinctive aesthetics that Rivadossi is known for. An extraordinary piece, established by intensive hand-planed and trimmed finishes.
