Re-Braun – Dieter Rams Audio 1 gets a modern makeover


Regular readers will know of our love for all things Dieter Rams, including this modern interpretation of a classic – the Re-Braun.

Yes, this is the classic 1960s Audio 1, once packing a vinyl deck and radio, but thanks to Bootleg Objects, now equipped with a Wi-Fi connection for internet radio and MP3 streaming, along with two TFT displays for track info, a wireless speaker and remote control. All of that with the same 60s looks – even the controls have been adapted for the new functionality.

We would be all over but for one thing – the price of this makeover is around £12,000, not including the remote and speaker. Maybe one day. See over the page for another image.
