The private room at Riva’s La Spezia shipyard currently features Fornasetti furniture

Ferretti Group has partnered with Italian design firm Fornasetti, a luxury artistic design company founded in Milan in 1940 by Piero Fornasetti, for its Riva and Custom Line brands.

Ferretti says the collaboration stems from both companies’ shared passion for art and design, and is centred around the concept of made-to-measure.

Of the seven brands making up Ferretti Group’s broad portfolio, Custom Line has for nearly 30 years been designing and building contemporary superyachts in composite materials or aluminium that are completely made-to-measure, with custom interiors reflecting the owner’s desires, character and approach to the sea.

And, as has been the case for over 180 years with the yachts built by Riva, the Ferretti Group brand has become known the world over as an emblem of respect for tradition and the ability to build on its heritage.

Fornasetti, which is now headed by Piero’s son Barnaba, is a Milan atelier that still exclusively produces handmade items by skilled artisans in annual limited editions, using a process that ensures each product is a stunning art multiple.

Ferretti Group says that Fornasetti’s decorative art joins the group’s luxury yachting universe ‘to create elegant and original ambiences that will give customers an exclusive and immersive experience.’ 

The builder continues: ‘It’s here that the design and craft work associated with the Atelier’s “thinking with your hands” approach come together to produce floating works of art.’

As a result of this collaboration, the interior design of the private room at Riva’s La Spezia shipyard features Fornasetti furniture and accessories.

In the coming months Riva and Custom Line say they will be presenting surprising new projects that ‘promote creativity and craftsmanship.’
