Together with Eichler, Hans Gugelot (1920-1965) was credited by Erwin Braun as one of the ‘actual creators of Braun Design’. Born in Indonesia, of Dutch and Swiss descent, he originally trained as an architect in Lausanne, Switzerland. He worked as a freelance designer for Braun, while lecturing at The Ulm School of Design. Many of its ideas surrounding systems design fed into Braun’s design concept in the 1950s, particularly in the use of modular units. Gugelot is known, also, for his modular systems for Bofinger.
