Roberto Giulio Rida, born in Chignolo Po (PV) in 1943. The fundalemtal elements of Roberto Giulio Rida's works are all visible and tangible, construction quality and attendtion to detail, accurate proportions and use of vintage materials handmade in Italy.
These are the materials on which the Italian design of the fisrt half of the 20th century was built. These are the materials that ROberto Giulio Rida loves, knows and uses to express his imagination by designing unique handmade products.
Furniture, lamps, mirrors, boxes.
His work is concrete, not conceptual.
It does not rely on serial reporoducibility and does not seek innovation at all costs. Rida's work brings the lessons of the great masters of the past int our pesent in a personal and undemocratic way... creats protagonists of furniture, not supporting actors.
