Brass Dome Lamps from Allied Maker

Issue 9 · The Velvet Underground · March 4, 2014

While working on his thesis at Parsons, Ryden Rizzo found himself watching a series of YouTube tutorials about basic woodworking. Pairing his past experience with technology and lighting design with his newly acquired woodworking skills, Rizzo moved back to Sea Cliff, New York, and established a lighting studio in his parents' garage.

After building a few small pieces for friends, Rizzo founded Allied Maker, a company selling bespoke lighting and home items. He takes pride in stamping "Made in USA" on everything that he sells and packs shipments in recycled and biodegradable materials. For more information, visit Allied Maker.
