Tradition, innovation, excellence, these are the basic requirements of standard production.
We produce super sports cars that are the subject of dreams, many have become icons. They embody values that go beyond the simple functionality of a vehicle.
We are Italian, we look for excellence and believe that our DNA can be translated in each context, creating timeless masterpieces.
However, we know that in order not to weaken our brand, shared values and specific expertise are a must have when #lamborghini considers new collaborations.
These fundamentals lead us in the selection of partnerships.
We only seek partners whose mission is to create uniqueness and offer outstanding quality, guaranteeing exclusive and authentic products.
Riva 1920 shares the values of Lamborghini’s philosophy: #design, innovation, cutting edge technology, emotion, attention to detail but also a strong heritage.
The result is a range of furniture inspired by #lamborghini, coming from the meeting of two brands able to link excellence and passion.
Karim Rashid Statement
I was greatly inspired visiting #riva1920 and Lamborghini headquarters / factories. Seeing state of the art robotics combined meticulously with hand craftsmanship really shaped my ideas for a collaborative line of furniture. Italy is a perpetual farrago of ideas, concepts, truisms, hand craftsmanship and progressive manufacturing. Italy understood that #design is a public subject 75 years ago, long before the world accepted it. Without companies like #riva1920 and #lamborghini #design would have never become ubiquitous, omnipresent, experimental yet of the highest quality. The passion from both companies 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.
