265 was designed by Paolo Rizzatto in 1973; it marked the Italian architect’sfirst foray into product design and lighting, and one that set the basis for awider thinking into objects and illumination.
The design of Rizzatto’s 265 is as simple and intuitive as it is technical and precise: a suspended wall lamp comprising a head and weight, each balanced at the extremities of an adjustable arm, and attached to the wall in an asymmetric position. In Rizzatto’s design, each part featured a specifically chosen primary colour: the head, the most important element, was drawn in red, the weight was yellow and the connecting arm, blue.
