Rive Roshan is the artistic practice of Ruben de la Rive Box (Netherlands, 1981) and Golnar Roshan (Australia, 1986). The two partners started their careers in several high profile designer studios including Tom Dixon, Marcel Wanders and Tord Boontje. Working alongside some of the most prolific product and interior designers Ruben and Golnar formed their vision of a holistic approach towards design, bridging graphic, interior and product design disciplines and blurring the lines between design and art.
At the core of the studio’s development are the self-initiated research based projects, exploring visual wonder as a means to beauty, and the role of design in emotional well-being. Rive Roshan create to connect with people intuitively. Through experimental processes they design immersive spatial experiences, materials and objects that enrich lives. A deep interest in colour, texture and materiality leads to an aesthetic of raw beauty.
Rive Roshan’s work has been on show at Les Musée des Arts Decoratifs Paris, Tools Gallery Paris, Big Art Amsterdam, Powerhouse Museum Sydney, Shanghai Museum of Glass, a range of Design exhibitions around the world including Milan Design Week, Maison & Objet, Istanbul Design Week and London Design Festival.
Golnar and Ruben are also founders and creative directors of graphic design studio Design&Practice and co-founders of design platform Form Editions.
