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 (1932-2015) a German-born designer who was based in Milan most of his working career- is considered one of the most important designers of his generation. Within his lifetime- he received numerous international design accolades- including ten prestigious Compasso dOro awards. Sapper 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 included Alessi- Artemide- B&B Italia- Brionvega- FIAT- Heuer- Kartell- Knoll- IBM- Lenovo- Lorenz Milano- Magis- Molteni- Pirelli and many others. This investigation of Sappers work- based on over forty hours of interviews with the designer Jonathan Olivares- studies his objects- the circumstances that shaped them and the resulting ideals that emerge. The inter-generational conversation explores themes that reoccur throughout Sappers oeuvre- and which have a particular importance for a younger generation of designers and those with a desire to understand Sappers work from a fresh perspective. An illustrated timeline- packed with images from Sappers personal archives- reveals the incredible variety and technical brilliance of his work. Richard Sapper died in Milan on 31 December 2015. Designed by SM Associati- the agency of Marco Velardi from Apartamento magazine- the book opens with an image essay featuring candid commissioned photography by Ramak Fazel....
