The “SK 2” was issued in the inaugural year of Braun Design. It belongs to the small collection of devices designed in a modernist style and presented by the company at the 1955 Electronic Exhibition in Düsseldorf, their first major launch event. It is operated by two unmarked knobs and a dial, which doubles as a tuning knob. The design is notable for its minimalism, coupled with a certain formal softness. All labelling is removed; station names, obligatory at the time, are also absent. Instead, the dial is marked more abstractly by numbers. The rigorous use of the circle in the design’s formal arrangement, provides a counterweight to its otherwise severe reduction, lending the small set a cheeky demeanour.
