Company founder Kęstutis Špokas got interested in furniture trade while residing in the USA. With the help of the famous American designer and inventor Walter Ellis Durlin from Tupelo city, Mississippi (USA), Kęstutis has learned the basics of furniture trade and, when he has returned to Lithuania, he continued development of upholstered furniture production, applying the knowledge gained in the USA.
Risvė UAB, producing standard and nonstandard upholstered furniture, has been established in 1994. In two years, in 1996, Risvė UAB has achieved outstanding results – it has been awarded at Litexpo exhibition centre in the international exhibition of furniture. The company has won the prize of the best producer of upholstered furniture that in turn has encouraged and obliged Kęstutis to seek for heights in furniture design, to develop new models, and to look for new secrets of production.
Kęstutis Špokas’ company has won the first prize in the nomination of upholstered furniture during the international exhibition that took place in Riga, in 2000. One year later, in 2001, the first prize has been awarded for three models of new design at Litexpo exhibition centre.
A brand-new method of production of furniture frame skeleton has been developed in 2004. In Geneva it has been acknowledged as an invention, allowing obtaining unseen convex forms of upholstered furniture.
