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.
Sort is not just a litter receptacle by
another name — it’s a versatile recycling
system with a sustainable point of view. This flexible system of collection bins and organizing basket for
interior and exterior use was designed specifically for recycling.
Created by designer John Rizzi, Sort offers a neat and attractive
inducement to do the right thing. The distinctive top shape makes
openings highly visible and easy to reach, sheds water, and protects
contents. Bins, which can stand alone and accommodate litter if
desired, are offered in a palette of colors, including fresh new blue
and green hues. Bag clips inside bins eliminate unsightly overhang,
lids lift off for easy emptying, and this clever recycling solution is
itself completely recyclable.
