How orderly an apartment looks doesn’t just depend on how ascetic we live or how much we enjoy collecting things, but also whether we create the possibilities to accommodate our living accessories in an orderly manner. And there is plenty of furniture that can help us here.

Architect Gerald Wehner speaks about the efficiency of round structures, the degree of freedom round buildings offer the architect and the residents’ positive experiences.

The Rivera collection wants to suggest a contemporary interpretation of retro elegance reminiscent of a typically Mediterranean vibe. This idea is driven by a desire to experiment with contrasts and unique combinations of materials for the outdoors – lightweight metal, the reassuring warmth of wood, sophisticated weaves and the elegance of the fabrics – all contribute to transform even outdoor spaces into intimate and cozy settings.
