Summary note:
An in-depth study of the work of German-born industrial designer Richard Sapper, most famous for designs such as the Tizio lamp and the Brionvega radio. Richard Sapper (b. 1932), a German-born designer who has been based in Milan most of his working career, is considered one of the most important designers of his generation. He has received numerous international design accolades, including 10 prestigious Compasso d'Oro awards. Sapper has developed and designed a wide variety of products, ranging from ships and cars, to computers and electronics as well as furniture and kitchen appliances. His clients include Alessi, Artemide, B & B Italia, Brionvega, FIAT, Heuer, Kartell, Knoll, IBM, Lenovo, Lorenz Milano, Magis, Molteni, Pirelli and many others. This investigation of Sapper's work, based on over forty hours of interviews with the designer, studies his objects, the circumstances that shaped them and the resulting ideals that emerge.
