Great design can manifest itself in the everyday. The modernist designer Max Braun started in 1921 in a small engineering shop and quickly developed radio and audio production into a global brand. My first memory is the old man’s electric shaver, probably the product they are most famous for. The more you look the sleeker the products seem to become; beautifully simple and functionalist you can find attention to detail in the smallest corner of each piece. Room 606 is a specialist antiques business dealing in design from the last 150 years. Run by Matthew Grice, Room 606 reserves a particular focus on the modernist avant-gardes of the 1920s and 1930s – so more Braun can be found there as well as the likes of Bauhaus.
