About John Rizzi
John Rizzi was educated in industrial design and learned from the masters by helping develop designs by Michael Graves, Neils Diffrient, Richard Sapper and Massimo and Leila Vignelli. He began his own practice in 1985 and over the past two decades has designed bike accessories, office furniture systems, lounge seating, tables and lighting for major national and international companies. Rizzi's design process is rigorous, analytic and self-critical. His work has won IDSA, APEX, Contract Magazine and NEOCON Best Products Gold and Silver awards. His designs for Landscape Forms include the Parc Vue bench and receptacle, Parc Centre tables and chairs, and the Parc Lounge chair and ottoman.
The landmark collection was inspired by familiar themes in historic design, architecture and nature. Designer John Rizzi took his
inspiration from traditional cast iron furniture and
asymmetric patterns in nature.
A tough tool with a touch of class, Parc Vue recalls the wire mesh receptacle once a staple in city parks, giving the familiar a fresh face. Subtly curved metal mesh basket with urn-shaped liner results in a sculptural form, robust in function. Used without liner and with clear plastic bag, offer a transit solution.
