Willy Rizzo Black Bar Cabinet with Ottomans for Sabot, 70s

$ 8,000
  • Description
    Willy Rizzo, most famous for his photographer career, designed some furniture items from 1966 to 1978.
    Imagination and necessity also allowed Willy Rizzo to try his hand at furniture design. This activity began in Rome, while he was working for a hairdresser. In a short time, he obtained many requests. He later worked for Rodolfo Parisi, Gigi Rizzi, Franco Rapetti, Salvador Dalí and Brigitte Bardot. In 1968 he completed the creation of his own studio and factory in Tivoli, which employed more than 150 people.
    Over the next ten years, Rizzo designed and manufactured more than thirty pieces of furniture, opening boutiques throughout France, Europe and the United States. However, in 1978 Rizzo left the business to return to photography, his first love. Most of Rizzo's furniture is exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. He returned to furniture design for a period in the 1980s and then again in the mid-2000s, in collaboration with Paul Smith and Mallett Antiques.
    Here we have a very peculiar bar cabinet designed by Willy Rizzo for Sabot in 70s. It has lacquered laminated wooden structure, brushed steel and poufs with faux leather upholstery, plus slide top and bottle storage compartment.
    Good condition, fully original.
