Sapper & Zanuso
In the early 1960s, began an important collaboration between German designer Richard Sapper and the designer and architect Marco Zanuso, a partnership that would last for many years. Brionvega, an Italian electronics company which aimed to compete with Japanese and German producers, commissioned Sapper and Zanuso to create several radio and television sets. These products soon became icons of Italian design.
