The RT 20 table radio is a typical design by Dieter Rams for the West German manufacturer, Braun. It is an essay in visual simplicity, with no extraneous details or decoration. The front face of the radio slants slightly upwards to improve the legibility of the controls, and to cast the sound from the single loud speaker further into the room. The speaker itself is concealed behind the fascia with only pierced lines to indicate its presence.
