Tuner Studio 1
Hans Gugelot, Herbert Lindinger
(Design of Platteneinsatz by Wilhelm Wagenfeld)
Contractee and manufacturer: Braun AG, Frankfurt
This HiFi Studio 1 was to accommodate the growing requirements of sound quality. The front is inclined for easier handling. The scale is organized clearly and graphically, the operating components are positioned for easy use. The housing is made of glass fibre reinforced polyester (GRP) and has no cover. Large records project the housing. Minimization of outside measurements prioritised dust protection. Two separate loudspeakers could be connected for stereo sound. Studio 1 was presented at Universal Exhibition at Brussels in 1957.

Herbert Lindinger, diploma project by Hans Gugelot
From 1957 to 1959, the team Gugelot continued development of the system F11 and F12 as a HiFi modular system. As a diploma project, Herbert Lindinger investigated the integration of different information components to a coordinated system. He visualized basical positions by models.
Picture shows the system and its elements and also suggestions for table-top device or wall-mounted designs. There was no similar system development for such devices all over Europe at that time. Those rushing ahead blueprints were realized only in 1962 by Braun Design Division of Dieter Rams.
