Where form meets function

Industrial designers and fans may be interested in a new retrospective book being issued profiling 50 years of the Braun brand. Bernd Polster’s BRAUN – Fifty Years of Design and Innovation is a 504 page tome chronicling the “Dr” years. “Braun is not merely a trademark; it stands for an allencompassing concept. For the last five decades, this concept has spawned innovative products with an unprecedented regularity that begs to be explained – especially as the era spanned by the history of Braun design is not exactly one characterized by continuity. Instead, the second half of the 20th century witnessed a dramatic change in living conditions.”

Available for pre-order from Amazon.
