Rive Roshan


Rive·Roshan – Bio Rive·Roshan is a London based design duo consisting of Dutch designer Ruben de la Rive Box and Australian born Golnar Roshan who met whilst working at Marcel Wanders in Amsterdam. Their work aims to reinterpret human cultural heritage into new forms and is based on the belief that the adorned surface can be a carrier of culture in past, present and future.This year during Salone del mobile Rive Roshan launch their first ever lighting collection to coincide with the UNESCO international year of light. Inspired by Javanese ‘Wayang theatre’ where intricate puppets cast shadows onto a white fabric screen, the wayang lights are dramatic characters of their own theatrical performance. Working with the organic nature of the material which naturally sculpts itself over a plexiglass disc, the different layers of fabric create interference patterns of the weave that merge with the cast shadows of the laser cut patterns.
