Photography and furniture design - Willy Rizzo did both. He made a leap from a very successful career as a portrait photographer in the sixties to working on abstract modernist furniture design in the seventies. Paul Smith recently mounted an exhibit of his work - and Wallpaper covered it. We pulled a few interesting examples of both his furniture and his portraits - jump below to check them out:
