Armchair in cedarwood. The year 2009 marks the beginning of the collaboration between the

internationally renowned designer Karim Rashid and RIVA 1920. A world preview of this

collaboration will be shown at the Milan “Salone Internazionale del Mobile” where Karim

Rashid and RIVA 1920 are presenting their first joint project: KAIRO, a chair in solid fragrant

cedar-wood. Reflecting on the experience of designing KAIRO, Karim Rashid says: “When I

designed the KAIRO chair for RIVA 1920 I was guided by the woodworking process itself used

to produce a piece of furniture from a simple block of wood, with the ’objective of removing the

least quantity of wood possible from the trunk. The unusual double-arc form cut into the chair

draws its inspiration from my recent trip to Egypt where I was particularly struck by these lines

that seem to conjure up an eye. A line that I found again and again in furniture, in the shape of

certain boats carved by hand into the wood and in the symbolism of hieroglyphic writing of the

ancient Egyptians”
