Designer: Dieter Rams and Dietrich Lubs for Braun
Why is it Special?
We have always loved the classic design of vintage Braun appliances and electronics. From the SK8 Record player by Dieter Rams (1956) to the electric shavers, calculators and electric kitchen mixers of the 60′s and 70′s, Braun has always championed minimalist, honest design. In all, Dieter Rams spent 40 years designing for Braun, a proponent of the maxim “less and more”, his designs have influenced a slew of younger designers, from Jonathan Ive (Apple) to Jasper Morrison (Rowenta). This calculator was originally designed in 1987 and re-issued in 2013. The Braun ET66 calculator is considered to be the pinnacle of the “less but better” philosophy thanks to its simple, rectangular design with convex, circular buttons. This calculator measures 82mm x 139mm x 16mm and includes a protective slide cover. Battery included.
