eBay watch: Dieter Rams-designed Braun SK55 radio/record player

Note all articles are independently researched and written by myself. However, if you buy via one of the links it may be an affiliate and I may earn a small commission.


We mentioned last week that the Design Museum has announced a major Dieter Rams exhibition in London from November this year, no doubt showing off all the major designs Rams creating for Braun, which will certainly include the Braun SK55 radio/record player, which you can own right now if you bid for the one above on eBay.

It's a classic design from Rams and Hans Gugelot, dating back to 1956 and known affectionately as 'Snow White's coffin' for reasons probably evident from the picture above. It's described as being in 'very nice original condition' and 'full working order', which means you can take in radio over three bands and vinyl over three speeds, throwing on some stylish modernist design for your living room too.

Check out the images on the site for a close-up look, then check your bank balance, it's up on a 'Buy It Now' for £922.38 – although the seller will take an offer.
