The Rizzatto collection comprises two pendants and a ceiling light. The organic shapes created by mouth-blown glass are one feature all three have in common.
The pendants comprise brass-coloured anodised aluminium and mouth-blown glass. The light unfolds from its source, and diffuses wonderfully through the opal-white glass, creating soft, comfort- able quality lighting. Two of the pendants are height-adjustable, making them versatile for use in private homes or public places. The ceiling light is mounted directly on the ceiling, making it possible to create unique, decorative ceiling lighting.
Rizzatto 32, gives a soft and even light, making it ideal to place above a dining table or sofa. It is also great for either the bedroom or the hallway.
