Stunnning Eastern Design (SED)

SED Published by Taschen 1990 by Georg C. Bertsch & Ernst Hedler. If you can get hold of a copy definitely worth it. Full of wonderful East German Design.
"Our workers are just rushing out to buy the tasteful, and yet favourably priced goods, which our industry has long since been producing"
Quote taken from the back cover of the book.


  1. My wife's father grew up in Brandenburg & Berlin during DDR times. He migrated to Australia from West Germany in the 70s, but they still have things like this laying around the house in the most unexpected corners. Love those Beirettes, always been on my hit list...

  2. Wow!!! would love to see what your Wife's father has. The typewriters my fav.
