Brionvega has crafted Italian-made hi-fi and electronics in Milan, Italy for over 70 years. Now for the first time, their iconic line of hi-fi products have been re-released and re-engineered to include modern technologies like Bluetooth, and vastly improved sound quality for a modern listening experience.
Born in 1913 and 1918 respectively, Pier and Achille Castiglioni were Italian-born Industrial Designers who worked on a range of projects from architecture, to lighting design, furniture, hi-fi consoles, and many other objects. Their works helped to establish Italy as a leader in sophisticated modern design after the second World War.
Born in Milan in 1935, Bellini is an architect, critic and designer. Among the companies that have relied on him over the years - in addition to Brionvega - Cassina, Yamaha, Rosenthal and Renault. Twenty-five of his works are present in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern art in New York.
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.
