Braun TP 1 by Dieter Rams
The model for today’s micro-stereo systems was not the Sony Walkman from the year 1979, but a system appliance Dieter Rams designed 20 years earlier for Braun. He combined the newly developed pocket radio T 4 with a miniature record player, which docks on. Playing involves the pick-up being pressed down onto the record via a spring balancer, while in rest mode it disappears behind a removable curtain.
See the almighty TP 1 playing the almighty Beatles!
