A Console Table D46 x H73.5 x W129.5cms

The furniture of Willy Rizzo is very particular in style. It is not just the grammar of the age, it summarizes the age. If one had to try to capture the key elements of the 1970's in Europe you would conjure up the clean classical lines and the highly polished surfaces of Willy Rizzo furniture. Coming from the classical tradition one can see his pieces used in any sort of environment, indeed even in his own publicity one sees conventional antiques acting as a backdrop for the austere modern designs he promoted.
Alongside the severity of the Willy Rizzo style one sees the twin strands of quality and originality. The craftsmen he employed came from the traditions of fine cabinet making and metalwork and not from the manufacturing ethos that dogs and diminishes so much of modern design.
