Inverso is the result of a collaboration between Riva 1929 and San Patrignano, Europes largest residential treatment center in Europe.
Most "barriques" or French oak wine barrels are destroyed after 3 years. To bring them back to life, we looked at new ways to reuse them alongside 30 other design studios, the designs were then produced at the San Patrignano wood shop.
My approach was to celebrate the beautiful stained material while hinting at it's origins.
