Not simple furnishing elements but pieces of history
We use the wood of centuries-old olive trees, without cutting them down, but using seasonal pruning waste. Each product is numbered and certified. Pruning is not commissioned by us but carried out by the supplying agricultural companies, only if necessary for the plant, and is verified by pruners in possession of professional qualifications recognized by official bodies.
We donate 4% of each sale to plant olive trees in Salento tormented by Xylella, supporting the Apulian association OlivaMi.

At the beginning of the 1900s, Archaeologist Paolo Orsi unearthed the temple of Demetra in ancient Locri. This is one of the most telling discoveries as it unveiled the profound connection between the land of Calabria and the people who populated it. Anciently, the Goddess was believed to be propitiatory of fertility and abundant harvests. Farmers kept small votive statuettes depicting Demetra and often offered gifts to the deity.
This bond is tangible today, almonst as if the Godess still holds a mystical influence on the forces that regulate nature. Aliva Design's "Demetra" table clock, inspired by the many votive statues found in the Calabrian countryside (now located in the Archaeological Civic Museum of Cirò Marina KR) celebrates this profound bond.
The Demetra clock recalls the sinuosity of the Goddess' body, just as it was traditionally represented. Elegant and minimalist, Demetra is an object meant to be venerated and contemplated. Its iron hands mark the passing of time with unpeccable precision, just like the change in seasons feeds the fundamental cycle of life.
