Born in Italy, Paolo Rizzatto graduated from Politecnico University of Milan with a degree in architecture
in 1965. In the 40+ years since then he has brought his expertise to a variety of projects, ranging from
interior planning to architecture to lighting and product design. He has also taught at Columbia University
in New York, Cranbrook Academy of Art in Detroit, Washington University in St. Louis and other
institutions worldwide. His work has been recognized with many awards, including three Compasso d’Oro
prizes in 1981, 1989 and 1994. His 265 Wall Lamp (1973) combines the space-saving design of a sconce
with the reach of a floor lamp. The pivoting steel arm and revolving head allow you to direct the light
where you need it most to suit the task at hand. Bulb (not included): incandescent 75W/120V/A19 medium.
