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 Parc Centre chair is a clever riff on the Parisian outdoor standard, offering comfort with a pleasing bounce. Parc Centre chairs, tables, lounge and ottoman
comfortably support social activities in formal
and informal settings alike. Steel construction
coupled with economy of form make them nimble
enough to move around and heavy enough to
hold their ground. Sled bases are stable on grass,
gravel or hard surfaces. Seats have a pleasing
bounce. Chairs, lounges and ottomans stack.
