Between 1940 and 1942 Gugelot studied architecture in Lausanne , and graduated as an architect from Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH), Zurich in 1946.
In 1950 Gugelot founded his own office and began designing "M 125," a shelving and storage for which he later became known. Another influential work of Gugelot's in this period was the Ulm Stool, which he designed in collaboration with Bill.
In 1954, Gugelot met Erwin Braun, then-head of German consumer product company, Braun. Throughout the remained of the decade, Gugelot created a number of designs for the company, including the Braun SK 4, which he designed with Dieter Rams.
