"D55 Exhibition Stand"
The venue adopted a design inspired by the "D55 Exhibition Stand" used at the "Dusseldorf Wireless Equipment Trade Fair" held in 1955. It is an epoch-making method of exhibiting in an isolated space so that you can immerse yourself in the world view of audio equipment, which was a new product of "Braun" at that time. The venue is divided into four themes, "Amaze", "Develop", "Focus", and "Marchandising", and Rams's minimalistic and timeless world view from different perspectives. Can be experienced.
"T1000 Radio" which is also stored in MoMA (Museum of Modern Art, New York)
