Hans Gugelot from the University of Design in Ulm and Dieter Rams designed this device in 1956. They used new materials and shapes for the first time to focus attention on functionality. The German nickname for the device, “Snow White’s coffin,” was prompted by the transparent cover made of acrylic glass. 6 circuits for AM, 9 circuits for FM
