A stainless steel console having a black glass top to each tier by Willy Rizzo. Concealing two drawers to the front.
Signed and dated by Willy Rizzo.

Willy Rizzo made his name by photographing beautiful people, who adored his company, and always will. But the bon viveur artist who carmed celebrities was also an invetnor, a gifted technician, a follower of Leonardo. In 1968 he went to live in Rome and started to design furniture for his own apartment, inspired by classical principles, made by a small group of craftsmen. Antiques were uncomfortable, Scandinavian and psychedelic style unsympathetic. His ultra chic brown, black and gold decoration, glossy geometric furniture, including tables with a 'bassin' for chilled champagne, and a lamp to 'encourage flirting' brought all the Dolce Vita princes and playboys of the newly named Jet Set, wanting more of the same. Commissions came from Brigitte Bardot and Salvador Dali. The Rizzo atelier grew to employ 150 cabinetmakers, and the world took notice.
