    Very nice ! Entertainment center by Braun, the German consumer electronics manufacturer, DIETER RAMS (1932-) emerged as one of the most influential industrial designers of the late 20th century by defining an elegant, legible, yet rigorous visual language for its products.ounded in Frankfurt in 1921 by the engineer Max Braun, the company had a sound reputation for engineering and for developing new products, including the first combined radio and record player. After Max’s death in 1951, his sons Artur and Erwin took charge and repositioned Braun to benefit from the expansion of the post-war consumer electronics market. It was a time of rapid technological change when manufacturers were harnessing the engineering advances made in the defence industry during World War II to develop new electronic products for consumers. It was also a time of changing taste. The first wirelesses, gramophones and television sets had been hidden inside wooden cabinets to resemble traditional furniture, but the new generation of post-war consumers had lost their parents’ taboos about technology, which they saw as an exciting symbol of progress. Realising that the styling of their products needed to become more sophisticated, in 1954 the Braun brothers asked the tutors of the recently founded Ulm School of Design to advise them on product design and recruited a design team including Rams.
