Giuseppe Rivadossi Set of Eight Dining Chairs in Oak


Giuseppe Rivadossi for Officina Rivadossi, set of eight dining chairs, oak, Italy, circa 1980

An exceptional set of chairs by the Italian sculptor and designer Giuseppe Rivadossi, featuring a high level of craftsmanship in woodwork. The chairs are architecturally built based on the assemblage of parts through sophisticated wood joints and pins. The decorative aspect of the wood joints makes them not only necessary for the construction but also has a strong visual impact on the design itself. High quality oak has been used to construct the chairs, which displays pronounced grains. This gives the chairs a natural appearance and graphic visualization.

Giuseppe Rivadossi (1935) was born in Monteclana di Nave, Italy, where he still lives and works. At a young age, Rivadossi's path begins with wood carving, with works reflecting on his poetic idea of living. In 1962 Rivadossi took over the carpentry founded in 1920 by his father Clemente, which he transformed into an atelier, or rather a creative workshop. Eventually, Rivadossi and collaborators established 'Officina Rivadossi' in 1976 where he started the manufacture of wooden objects and unique modern furniture.
