“I have always thought that the most interesting challenges start from compliance with bonds.”
I chose to focus on a single very simple concept and seek its richness and complexity.
With RIGA I tried to investigate the meaning of this word applied to a handcrafted surface.
RIGA becomes the texture for a floor or wall surface that expresses its meaning through an imperfect relief.
RIGA is a manually engraved board repeating an infinite sequence of uneven segments.
RIGA is the mark left on the board by the plaster.
RIGA is a golden trace following the reliefs’ tracks.
RIGA is a system of unlimited relations between shapes and matter.
RIGA is available in:
3 “Smooth” sizes (36"x36" - 18"x36" - 9"x36")
2 “Track” formats (36"x36" - 18"x36")
3 “Small” pre-engraved listels (3x12) that can be grouted tone on tone or in contrast, making the grout a chromatic decorative element.”
