Pieces of Nordic Happiness

Samy Rio

French designer Samy Rio skillfully balances craft and industrial production – Rio has a background in carpentry and industrial design. In his hands, the two seemingly opposite modes of production not only seamlessly combine but also support each other. A graduate of ENSCI-Les Ateliers School of Design in Paris, Rio’s approach is experimental and open-minded, and in addition to bamboo, glass and ceramics, he has even explored the use of invasive plants in his design.

Samy Rio has designed pieces for the following brands: Petite Friture
