J.R. Kortman Center for Design pays tribute to industrial designer Richard Sapper

From the Tizio lamp to Alessi's Bollitore Water Kettle, industrial designer Richard Sapper has brightened our lives with his sturdy, functional, and beautiful products that have sustained their relevance, value, and elegance. Mr. Sapper died on December 31st, 2015. J. R. Kortman has been selling Sapper designed products since we first opened in 1986. The now classic water kettle Bollitore, in 1986, was priced at $95, and is still available at J. R. Kortman. Today it retails for $330. The kettle, and many other Sapper designs, are in permanent museum collections around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
