Design by Hans Gugelot
Hans Gugelot is considered one of the key figures of the "Second Modernism" in German product design. Gugelot developed a completely new, pioneering design culture for Braun, from which radios, shavers, lightning and kitchen appliances emerged and which had a lasting effect on design, first in Germany & later worldwide. Hans Gugelot (1 April 1920 – 10 September 1965) was an Indonesian-born, German engineer and industrial designer known for his modernist consumer products. He completed his early education in Laren and Hilversum, North Holland. In 1934, the Gugelot family moved to Davos, Switzerland. Between 1940 and 1942 Gugelot studied architecture in Lausanne and graduated as an architect from Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH), Zurich in 1946.
