In 1969 Marco Zanuso and Richard Sapper created the TV from semi-transparent black acrylic and metal for the Brionvega company . The effect of such material as the design itself are amazing: when switched on image acts as a movie on the big screen, shut down as a dark cube. Material, shape and perfection of manufacture created a sculptural object. It was awarded at BIO 5 with honorary mention.
