Vintage Willy Rizzo Cocktail bar, 1970's
JAMES BOND style at home?
This cocktail bar was designed by Willy Rizzo in the 1970s. His cocktail and bar designs are among his most productive designs as well as most sought after objects from the oeuvre of his furniture.
This particular piece is a fine example of the glamorous style that Rizzo is known for.
The bar is equipped with the original fridge and freezer for ice blocks and handy storage cupboards on the left and right with glass doors for convenient storage of drinks and glasses.
The back wall is equipped with lighting with a mirror wall that makes the bar a real eye-catcher in your interior, man-cave, outdoor area or office.
In 1968 he moved to Rome and started working as a furniture designer for his personal needs because, according to him, "Scandinavian furniture was neither comfortable enough nor luxurious enough". In response to the demand, he created his workshops in 1970 and launched his sales points all over the world.
"Imagination and a strong modern style" are the words that define his style.
He opens a Willy Rizzo store, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, then several in France and Europe, as well as outlets in New York, Miami and Los Angeles. 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. Salvador Dali ordered from him as well as Brigitte Bardot, Lenny Kravitz and many others.
Lenny Kravitz described the austere look of this modern designer's furniture as "very strong, very masculine and really funky."
Willy Rizzo died in 2013, but his works will last forever!
