Industrial designer Richard Sapper dies aged 83

'Sapper was a gifted designer whose work could be seen as both rational, and emotional, reflecting the Germany of his birth, and the Italy that he moved to at the height of its miraculous post war rebirth as a global centre for design. His work with Marco Zanuso for Brionvega on transistor radios and portable tvs was far from the timelessness of the Ulm school, and yet it looks as contemporary now as it did when it was first launched. I have the radio on my desk today. The think pad for IBM, the Tizio, the most iconic of all the adjustable lights, all showed his quiet wit, his humanity, and his acutely developed eye for detail. He showed that a designer does not need a signature style to be immediately recognisable for his intelligence.' - Deyan Sudjic, Director, Design Museum
