THE HISTORY OF THE OBJECT. In the fervor of 1964, the brilliant union between two icons of Italian design, Marco Zanuso and Richard Sapper, gave life to an unprecedented product: the BRIONVEGA FD1102, a wired audio speaker destined to indelibly mark the history of minimal design.

The Brionvega, born from their collaboration in 1970, embodied the culmination of their joint research in the field of forms, techniques and materials. Their long history of successes, including the famous Doney for Brionvega in 1962, had already made the couple a point of reference in the design panorama. This wire speaker, in addition to being an expression of elegance and modernity, reflected Zanuso's attention to the industrialization of the product and the application of new materials. The Diffy's futuristic shape, with clean, minimalist lines, was a testament to their ability to anticipate trends and transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.

This design jewel, with its unique appearance, became an icon in the homes of enthusiasts and collectors. The Museum of Modern Art in New York hosted the testimoniestangible onions of these design geniuses. The Brionvega FD1102 even today, remains a reminder of the creative genius of Zanuso and Sapper, combining the technical mastery of the former and the visionary innovation of the latter. An immortal piece that continues to resonate through the decades, confirming their status in the design firmament.
