Event Details

Hans Gugelot

Birthday: 01.04.1920
Birthplace: Makassar, RI
Date of Death: 10.09.1965 (Ulm, D)

Hans Gugenlot accomplished more in his short life than many designers in their entire career. Especially his designs for Braun, such as the radio and record player SK 4 from 1956, which was nicknamed “Snow White’s Coffin”, and the shaver “Sixtant” from 1961. The latter set itself apart through its design – in a time where every device looked alike, Gugenlot combined black plastic with chrome. To this day, this pattern is accepted as classy.
