FREE FROM THE EPHEMERAL ILLUSION OF DEFYING TIME THROUGH THE ARBITRARINESS OF SHAPE, GIORGIO RAVA'S DESIGN PRACTICE BECOMES A QUEST FOR THE ESSENTIAL. HIS WORK FEATURES PURE ALMOST PRIMORDIAL VOLUMES, THE QUIETLY ABSTRACT, SCULPTURAL PRESENCE OF WHICH MAKES THEM ITEMS, WHICH CAN STILL BE USED ON A DAILY BASIS. THEY CONVERSE INTIMATELY WITH PRISTINE SPACES, WHICH EXTOL THE SOUL AND WHERE SIMPLICITY LETS THE SPIRITUALITY AND SUBJECTIVITY OF THOSE WHO LIVE THERE SPEAK. A DISTINCTIVE VISION THAT GOES BEYOND THE BREATHLESS FRENZY OF THE CONTEMPORARY, AND IS FREE OF EXCESS, FREE OF AN OVERABUNDANCE OF MATERIALS AND COLOURS AND ABLE TO REDISCOVER THE SPIRITUAL VALUE OF EMPTINESS, THE ENDLESS POETRY OF LIGHT, THE STRENGTH OF MATTER AND THAT OF NATURAL ELEMENTS. STONE AND WOOD, LIGHT AND SHADOWS, WATER AND FIRE ARE THE CUSTODIANS OF HIS WISH TO CANCEL OUT TIME. THE WORK OF THE PRACTICE WHICH BEARS HIS NAME, EMBRACES A RANGE OF DIFFERENT DESIGN AREAS, RANGING FROM PRODUCT AND FURNITURE DESIGN, TO HOME AND RETAIL INTERIORS, EXHIBIT SPACES AND CONCEPTS, PRIVATE RESIDENCES, CORPORATE CONSULTANCY AND ART DIRECTION, THROUGH A TOTAL APPROACH. BESIDES PRIVATE COMMISSIONS, THE STUDIO ALSO WORKS ACTIVELY WITH A NUMBER OF IMPORTANT ITALIAN DESIGN COMPANIES, INCLUDING HENRYTIMI, MK, TOSCOQUATTRO AND DAVIDE GROPPI. PASSION, SENSITIVITY, INTEGRITY AND THE CONTINUOUS QUEST FOR PERFECTION CLEARLY DEFINE HIS WORK.
