PANGEA EXPO 2015



 

Pangea table design by Michele De Lucchi and made by Riva 1920 for Expo 2015, is now on display in the amazing and central location of Piazza Italia, the heart of Expo 2015.

The project takes inspiration and its name from Pangea, the single continental mass which is thought to have included all the lands above sea-level and which in later geologicaleras broke up to give today’s continents.

The 80 square meters top in Kauri, millennial wood coming from New Zealand, is made of 19 shaped pieces and it is supported by 271 legs in Briccola wood, oak posts retrieved from Venice Lagoon.

The core of the realization of this project is the respect for the environment and the safeguarding of our arboreal heritage by using recycled timber, something which has always been a distinguishing theme of our company.
