Willy Rizzo bar
About Willy Rizzo
In 1968, Willy Rizzo moved to Rome and started making his own furniture designs because, according to him, "Scandinavian furniture was neither comfortable enough nor luxurious enough". 'Imagination and a strong modern style' are the words that define his style. His creations are published in many magazines and exhibited in museums around the world.
Since he had many friends in fashion and film, orders poured in. One of his first clients was Ghighi Cassini, followed by the Jet Set and the wealthy Italian high society. Amongst his most famous clients were Salvador Dali, Brigitte Bardot, Lenny Kravitz and many others.
