RIVEN was founded in 2013 by Matthew Hastings, evolving a life devoted to the pursuit of beauty and elegance in the everyday. Formerly a chef, he honed his craft under master cabinet-maker Randy Taplin, and AIA Fellow architect David Sellers, among others.
The work emerges from the belief that clear design is essential to a balanced life. The objects are born from traditional methods of woodworking and look to the future of function to inform their design choices. This results in hardworking objects that fit comfortably in the everyday.
