rivaviva eco awards

HEALTHY, BEAUTIFUL AND SUSTAINABLE: THIS IS THE FORMULA FOR THE ECO-DESIGN OF THE FIRST ‘RIVAVIVA ECO AWARDS’ IN COLLABORATION WITH THE SCHOOL OF SARAJEVO

RivaViva Arredamenti has launched the first ‘RivaViva Eco Awards‘ for a zero-impact life that does not give up beauty, because design has to make choices for the environment and the health of those who live in a house and with its furniture. This is why RivaViva asked the skilled craftsmen of the School of Sarajevo, who rely on the companies Artisan and Gazzda, to collaborate.

The modern and highly ecological furnishings, designed by the historical Brianza-based brand, will compete against those created by the designers of the School of Sarajevo, works where the local tradition is enhanced by engraved wood, the result of a typically manual skill, reinterpreted by designers such as Salih Teskeredzic and Mustafa Cohadizic.

During Milan Design Week 2018, at the Spazio RivaViva in the Isola district (via L. Porro Lambertenghi 18), on Thursday, April 19, journalists and public are invited to choose, between the two groups of ecological furniture, the one that best represents the synthesis between nature, beauty, innovation. The award ceremony will be held on May 10, 2018, during an evening event.

RivaViva will plant a tree in the province of Milan for each product sold, thanks to the operation ‘Un eco-mobile un albero’, in partnership with Legambiente.
