Artur Braun and Dr. Fritz Eichler No. 16 "SK 2" in Bakelite and Steel, 1955

About

Artur Braun and Dr. Fritz Eichler No. 16 "SK 2" is made from painted bakelite, steel and plastic in 1955. The "SK 2" tube radio was issued in the inaugural year of Braun Design, presented by the company at the 1955 Electronic Exhibition in Dusseldorf, their first major launch event. It is operated by two unmarked knobs and a dial, which doubles as a tuning knob. The design is notable for its minimalism, coupled with a certain formal softness. All labeling is removed; station names, obligatory at the time, are also absent. Instead, the dial is marked more abstractly by numbers. The rigorous use of the circle in the design's formal arrangement provides a counterweight to its otherwise severe reduction, lending the small set a cheeky demeanor.
