Hollywood Regency cocktail bar in the style of Willy Rizzo. The set includes a counter element and illuminated backbar cabinet, with chrome, suede, and brass detailing. The counter contains a glass top inclusive a fridge and a cabinet. The bar also has a matching bar stool in the same stunning turquoise colored suede as the cabinet (possibly sold together with the bar). The way the different materials, colors and textures combine creates a luxurious appearance. The shapes of this set are all round, note that beautiful light above the backbar. Also, the turquoise color for this cocktail bar is rare to come across.
Willy Rizzo (1928-2013), born in Naples, was a celebrity and Hollywood photographer. His models include Brigitte Bardot and Audrey Hepburn. At a later stage in life, Rizzo discovered that his clientele loved his particular aesthetics and sense for style so much that he decided to design furniture. Often his design where commissions from for example Salvador Dali or Marilyn Monroe. From the end of the 1960s onwards, Rizzo designed about 30 different furniture pieces.
