A nice surprise
As I was walking through the charming Rione Monti in Rome, I came across a lab store that immediately caught my attention. I discovered beautiful and minimal creations in wood, natural materials and recycled objects. And, most important, all designed and handmade by two Roman brothers.
Edoardo Maria Giusti created Rigodritto in 2000. He then involved his brother Francesco and opened the showroom in the heart of Monti. After years of custom made furnishings and products, they started the serial production of different furnishings.
Today their collections include more than thirty articles. From bookshelves and chest drawers to lamps and place mats, from desks to wine shelves. They also produce unique pieces and limited editions, and everything is entirely designed by them and self-produced in Rome. They only use virgin materials, and work together with local and highly selected craft workers. Every item is handled, finished and checked one at a time.
In the era of Ikea and of the digital revolution, it is inspiring to find creative talents who believe in their work in spite of many difficulties. Rigodritto’s works come from nature and recall nature. They express important values such as confidence in the capacity of man, respect of the environment, ancient crafts’ recovery and sustainability.
This is their spirit, and ShopAround wishes them the best of luck!
