  1. What looked pure and Bauhaus for its day now looks like student work. Still, Deater Rams was a leading designer back in the 50s.

  2. Over the years, the transistor has gone down in size by several dimensions. But this was probably a revolution back then. The only problem I see with speaker grooves like those is the possibility of dust clinging inside them, but you can cover the unit up with a cloth or something. Overall, I like it…just like I like Braun products in general.

  3. Has HfG Ulm all over it! … the Bauhaus resurrected in its post-war incarnation with Hans Gugelot and Dieter Rams’ DNA ready to clone Jonathan Ive. “Snow White’s coffin” exemplifying DR’s genetic sequence – Good design is: innovative; makes a product useful; aesthetic; helps us to understand a product; unobtrusive; honest; durable; consequent to the last detail; concerned with the environment; as little design as possible. — Back to purity, back to simplicity.

  4. Beautiful! The contrast between the wood and painted sheet metal(?) is nice. I love the lid handle, a subtraction solution. The color would come from the record label. I’m going to see if I can find one on eBay. By the way, I think his name is spelled Dieter.

  5. There is no lid handle! The perspex cover is attached the wrong way around! Probably done by someone who doesn’t play LP records…

  6. A thoughtful and detailed hands-on review of the final iteration of this design, the SK 55… http://www.minimallyminimal.com/blog/braun-sk55
