Braun ET66 CalculatorBNE001BK
The 8-digit Braun ET66 Calculator was designed by Dieter Rams and his longtime design partner Dietrich Lubs for Braun in 1981 and has become an icon of modern design. This classic calculator can be found in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art New York. This beautiful minimalist electronic adding machine is a strong reminder of the "less, but better" philosophy preached by Dieter Rams. It's no accident that the Braun ET66 looks surprisingly similar to some features in the current iPhone as Steve Jobs and his lead designer (Jonathan Ive) used to admire the products and design philosophies of Dieter Rams.
This new calculator's operations are carried out by using convex circular buttons creating a simple play of shapes which delight the eye. During the last few years the Braun ET66 has become somewhat of a cult-object, even with the new technology obsessed millennial generation. This new Braun ET66 calculator is fully authorized by Dieter Rams and Dietrich Lubs and features an 8-digit LCD screen, protective case and automatic power-off after 6 minutes. It looks and feels exactly like the original calculator from the 80's.
