We offer what is probably the rarest device from BRAUN, the Wagenfeld Combi, in its original packaging. Exceptionally well preserved. The radio - phono combination made it possible to listen to the radio on the go and, for example. Playing small records, so-called singles, at a picnic. The lifestyle product of the early 1950s from the German cult manufacturer BRAUN in Kronberg. The COMBI marks the beginning of the modern product lines in the audio and phono sector, from 1957 in collaboration with the HFG in Ulm with Hans Gugelot and Dieter Rams. In these early days, the Bauhauser Wilhelm Wagenfeld was also involved in some devices; the COMBI was entirely designed by him. Apparently the COMBI was only manufactured for one or two years, was very expensive and was not a commercial success. Today the COMBI is Braun's rarest device, here we offer it in almost immaculate condition in the original printed packaging. Apparently our device was stored in its original packaging for decades and was not very often exposed to daylight.
