The Kangaroo hi-fi side table was designed in the mid 60s by Dieter Rams and is a perfect fit for Braun audio stereo systems as well as TV’s. The design, which is remotely reminiscent of kangaroo feet, probably gave this hi-fi sideboard its name.
This design can be found again in the Vitsoe Zapf 601 RZ 60 and 602 chairs. These chairs, which still look modern today, are absolute rarities. When they are offered, however, the prices for the Vitsoe Zapf 601 and 602 armchairs range in dizzying heights, assuming perfect condition.
The Vitsoe furniture series from Braun is very extensive, especially the Vitsoe 606 shelving system is widely known and still produced today. The design of the aluminium frame of the Kangaroo has significant similarities with Vitsoe Zapf 601 RZ60 and 602 chairs. These chairs are very rare in mint condition. RZ 60 chairs from the late 60s obtain top prices, like the Kangaroo, which also is a much sought after design object and hard to find.
