After working for the architect Otto Apel, from 1953 to 1955, he joined an electronics manufacturing company , the Braun, of which he became director of the design department from 1961 to 1995. His activity is closely linked to Braun and to the functionalist school of industrial design in Ulm (Hochschule für Gestaltung, or high school of design).
