Earth Table Joins Eataly NYC
In the brand new Eataly located at Westfield World Trade Center, our partner brand Riva 1920 has designed and manufactured the Earth table that will be placed at the entrance of the space as a welcome sign for all the visitors.
Highlighted by a top made of resin and millenary Kauri wood from New Zealand, the special, one-time design is a stylized representation of the earth, the wooden parts metaphorically representing the continents and the resin sections the oceans. The texture of wood and the transparency of the resin are capable of creating a fascinating interplay of light and shadow.
The table is a quintessential symbol of sharing and exchange, meeting around a central theme of peace and unity. The special iron base, designed by Renzo Piano, symbolizes the tangle of the reinforcement of buildings protruding from the rubble following the collapse of the Twin Towers.
Riva 1920 specializes in the production of unique solid timber furniture and their home collection is available exclusively at Fanuli Sydney and Melbourne.
