About Us - OLD
Allied Maker is a Long Island-based design and manufacturing studio established in 2013 by designer Ryden Rizzo. Evolving from Rizzo’s background in jewelry, installation art, woodworking, and metal fabrication, the company creates meticulously engineered lighting fixtures. Every piece is handcrafted in Allied Maker’s workshop and in collaboration with the best New York fabricators. Valued by their customers for an elemental attention to detail, material, and form, Allied Maker is committed to manufacturing high-quality and long-lasting lighting made in the USA. The studio’s aesthetic combines outstanding natural materials with simple yet expressive forms. Inspired by raw materials that grow more beautiful with time, Allied Maker utilizes a hand-applied blackening process and unsealed brass that will develop a beautiful patina with use. These “living” finishes reflect life around them by reacting to its environment, creating a unique change to color and texture over time. Allied Maker’s lighting fixtures can be seen in boutique hotels, commercial offices, and housing projects from Los Angeles to Paris and has been featured in publications such as Elle Decor, Dwell, Architectural Digest, NY Magazine, and Domaine Home.
