Roberto Giulio Rida

Italian, 1943
Roberto Giulio Rida's work is ever changing because of his passion for exploration and his need to constantly challenge himself. His pieces are uniquely Rida. Bold, fun, sophisticated, and cerebral, they are unmatched in their expressiveness and craftsmanship. Much of his work is the result of research and experimentation. A modern Italian furniture master, his designs are typified by his use of unrepeatable materials such as Murano glass that is no longer in production, and salvaged elements of value, often basing the size and number of his editions on the quantity of materials available. His production standards are of the highest level, and Rida will often travel Italy to find the perfect craftsman able to bend a piece of glass in just the right way or join two pieces of metal that are seemingly incompatible. Inspired by plants, animals, and all aspects of nature, he energizes his pieces through his bold use of color and form.
Roberto is represented by many major galleries throughout the USA and Europe. His work has been shown at prestigious art and design fairs such as, The Salon-NYC, Collective Design,  Design Miami, & Design Miami Basel, PAD, Paris & London.
