Born in Milan in 1941, Paulo Rizzatto came to prominence in one of the most exciting periods in Italy's design history. After graduating from Milan Polytechnic in 1965 Rizzato worked as a prominent architect before discovering a passion for lighting design. His innovative approach to metal, and his engineering skill quickly made him an in-demand designer. To capitalise on this he founded the lighting company Luceplan in 1978. Rizzatto's design practice draws heavily from the elaborate flourishes of classical Italian design, as well as emerging Scandinavian and modernist movements. This hybrid style has had a lasting impact on Italian and global design. He continues to design, teach and publish his insights into architecture and the design process.
"The entire world of mediterranean art and architecture, from the Greeks to the Italian Renaissance, has been my master. I have a direct relationship with it."
More original than a suspension or a floor lamp, the Longarm metal wall lamp impresses with its long rotating arm and swiveling reflector capable of providing precise, targeted and off-center illumination to all areas at a height of 2,05 m. In addition to its great functionality, it will seduce you with the purity and timelessness of its simple lines and graphics, inspired by those of an industrial design icon of the 70s, the elegant and surprising wall lamp 265 by Paolo Rizzatto.
