Willy Rizzo (1928-2013), born in Naples, was a celebrity and Hollywood photographer. His models included 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 designs where commissions from for example Salvador Dali or Marilyn Monroe. From the end of the 1960s onwards, Rizzo designed about thirty different furniture pieces.
