With his eye for the spectacular and unusual, Paul Donzella has pulled together the largest exhibition in the US of work by the art designer, Roberto Giulio Rida.

The Milan based Rida who trained in the arts at the world renowned Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, creates furniture as works of art, (or perhaps works of art as furniture), while exploring his passion for materials like glass, mirror and crystal, often utilizing vintage or reclaimed materials. He fashions these carefully selected elements into jewel-like lamps, cupboards, tables, and many other furnishings that defy design trends, creating unique as well as short run works that absolutely add that touch of the sublime to any ultra fab room.

I’m pictured here at Donzella admiring Rida’s brilliant work and I’m wearing a white and black window pane plaid silk jacket and white shirt with black piping and black patent belt with silver leather trim and grommets by Gucci, Uniglo pale pink jeans, black and saddle leather loafers by Tom Ford, retro print pink and white silk pocket square by Charvet and my frangrance is Creed Bois de Cedrat.
