WILLY RIZZO COFFEE TABLE

Willy Rizzo is, perhaps, best know as a photographer - he worked for Paris match, and photographed some of the most important celebrities of the time, among them Brigitte Bardot, Grace Kelly and Pablo Picasso.

 

In the 1960's, however, he decided to apply his considerable talent to furniture design. Despite having no experience with this, he was very successful, and his original and stream-lined, elegant designs are among the most important of any Italian designer working between 1965 and 1980.

The central section is removable, and can be used for ice, perhaps to chill champagne.  

 

This table is stainless steel and laminate over wood

45" diameter x 14" high.
