Like with most of the products developed by the historic Italian furniture company, the “Brugola” wooden coffee table for Cantù based Riva 1920, designed by Ancona-based designer Roberto Giacomucci, proposes an icon, with a strong symbolic value dear to those who work with the essential construction fastener – screws.
At first glance, the “Brugola” piece, designed by Roberto Giacomucci for Riva 1920 seems to be an allen screw. Firmly screwed onto the ground, appearing to be distorted and – as if by magic – oversized to fulfill a new function.
Remember: Roberto Giacomucci is an architect, he lives and works inAncona. He designs and works as an art director with various Italian companies in the field of furniture, lighting and bathroom (Guzzini, Livi’t, Con&Con, Confalonieri, Emporium, R.S.V.P, Invicta, Magppie). He is the creator and editor of the quarterly Oblique design “quarterly connection between companies and designers”, and he is curator of the monthly column “design community” on magazine DDN (design diffusion news).
