Richard Sapper (born 1932 in Munich) is a German industrial designer. He received a Compasso d'Oro industrial design award in 1959. Sapper partnered with Italian designer Marco Zanuso and were hired in 1959 as consultants to Brionvega, an Italian company trying to produce stylish electronics that would compete with products manufactured in Japan and Germany. They designed a series of radios and televisions that became enduring icons of an aesthetic known as techno-functionalism. One of their more notable designs was the rounded, compact and portable Doney 14 (1962), the first television to feature completely transistorized construction. Using the aesthetic of sculptural minimalism, the pair designed the compact folding Grillo telephone for Siemens and Italtel in 1965. The Grillo was one of the first telephones to put the dial and the earpiece on the same unit, and today is a featured display at New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).Fish poacher is made of bilaminate of thick copper plate, ensuring perfect heat conduction. Encased in a thin layer of stainless steel, it ensures maximum hygiene and facilitates cleaning without affecting the copper's excellent temperature conduction properties. With internal grille in 18/10 stainless steel. At 60 cm in length and not oval but elliptical, this is essential for exceptionally large fish like bass, salmon, bream and even turbot (the poacher replaces the French rhomboid-shaped tubotière normally used for this purpose), as well as problem-sized dishes like Italian zamponi (boiled stuffed pig's trotter). It has a grille that can be adjusted to three different positions for boiling, steaming and draining the cooked food.
