Building and Finishing Techniques in Our Works

Building Techniques

In this section we would like to share with you details on our techniques, chosen by Giuseppe Rivadossi and used everyday in our workshop.

We’d like to share the beauty and the attention needed in handcraft and art.

THE BLOCK – VERTICAL FIBER

Crafting from a block of material is a primordial tecnique dates as far back as Paleolithic early utensils. It is an almost istinctive technique that developed over the years, mostly among sculptors. We fashion our pieces of furniture and cabinets by assembling the parts along the grain, in order to get a single block in which we can carve different structures fulfilling different function.

THE SNAP-FIT METHOD – ASSEMBLED BY JOINTS AND PINS

The snap-fit technique allows to go beyond single pieces of wood and allows to fashion rather complex structures. Snap-fit is the assembly method that most respect wood physiology; it allows to build strong yet light pieces of furniture. With this technique we bring out the unique beauty of wood.

THE WINDOW METHOD

The “window” method technique derives from the snap-fit method and addresses a rather specific need: it is meant to provide stability to the structure when the raw material is particulary strong. The combination of the micro “window” elements, joined by hidden core, is such to form efficient structures with a brand new image. These structures and their small recesses, suggest an inhabited and safe interior space.


Finishing Techniques

Surface finishing includes a range of processes that alter the surface of a manufactured item to achieve a certain appearance and feeling to the touch. All our techniques are handcrafted and handmade by our professional team.
