walter mainz – portable tv ‹k67› | fernsehgerätewerk staßfurt | 1967

 


the portable tv ‹k67› was a prestigious project of the fernsehgerätewerk staßfurt. it was planned for mass production for the 20th anniversary of the gdr in 1969. but the start of the production was defected and had a marginal daily output. so the project of the first transistor tv of the gdr was canceled already in 1967. the trendsetting design was by walter mainz, a fresh graduate from academy of the fine and applied arts in berlin.
