Working on the basis of the classic chandelier, Danish lighting brand Nuura is now launching the Rizatto collection designed by internationally renowned lighting designer Paolo Rizatto. With a long and distinguished career in the field of lighting and a fascination for chandeliers, Paolo Rizatto is Italy’s answer to Poul Henningsen of Denmark, making him the perfect match for Nuura’s ambition to spread light and joy.
“I have recently been working extensively with the topic of chandeliers. This fascinating subject has always been on my mind throughout my career as a lighting designer. That was why I enjoyed the stimulating challenge of creating a new collection of lamps based on the chandelier.” — Paolo Rizatto.
Comprising two pendants and a ceiling light, the Rizatto Collection is defined by organic shapes created by mouth-blown glass. The design of the pendants, which feature brass-coloured anodised aluminium and mouth-blown glass, allows the light to unfold from its source and diffuse through the opal-white glass, creating soft and comfortable quality lighting. Two of the pendants are height-adjustable, making them versatile for use in both private homes or public spaces. The ceiling light is mounted directly on the ceiling, allowing for the creation of unique, decorative ceiling lighting.
The collaboration with Paolo Rizzatto is part of Nuura’s strategy of working with external designers to enrich and create greater diversity within Nuura’s design range. The brand takes its inspiration from the Nordic design tradition, based on simplicity combined with respect for nature and the environment. The objective is to create an aesthetic design that spreads joy and quality lighting.
“Working with Paolo has been inspirational and educational. He is one of the most exciting lighting designers on the international scene and has created a whole range of stunning classics. Paolo has extensive experience within lighting and works with considerable attention to detail. The combination of his immense passion for light and lighting design brings a fantastic degree of energy to our partnership.” — Sofie Refer, Creative Director, Nuura.
