Blocco Galla is a centerpiece table made as a single block using wood with vertical grain.
It is manually finished on all sides using a gouge.
The entire manufacturing and finishing process is carried out manually in our workshop.
The wood used for this piece is Juglans Regia – common Italian walnut; not dried but “raw”. This wood belongs to the Latin tradition of furniture-making and features an extremely compact fibre which can however be worked without too much difficulty; it is therefore highly suitable for household items.
Over time the wood hardens and becomes extremely resistant, and oxidises slightly to take on a progressively warmer amber colour.
The keen desire to turn interior space into poetry has been clear in Giuseppe Rivadossi’s work since the 1950s. This block structure is testimony to this desire: the spherical shape of the lower surface, the squareness of the whole and the deep slots that create mysterious inner chambers make this a poetically living image.
