We’ve just returned from Dwell on Design 2011 in L.A., where RIVELI received the award for “Best Product Launch” in the Dwell on Design Awards!  And even though the award itself flagged the suspicion of LAX airport security on our way home, we’ve never been so thrilled to have a handsome little wooden block!

Sharing a large space with some other amazing products (LOFTwall, LIGHTS UP!, and peterFrancis by Saloom Furniture) curated by Bobby Berk Home, our booth was abuzz all weekend long.  Designed as a residential loft, the modular exhibit space featured two RIVELI installations.

A twenty-unit set of Art Shelves displayed artwork printed on a magnetic backing.  And since the magnetic backing makes it so effortless to change the art work, we featured two separate pieces: one by Penelope Osio-Brown and the other by Michael Schmidt.

On the other side of the “loft” was a set of four Design Shelves (with Kyle-Bunting hide inserts) which served not only as art + shelving, but showcased Riveli’s capabilities as a side table.

Needless to say, our west coast debut was a smashing success. Thank you to everyone who stopped by to visit us!
