Braun at Fifty

Holy smokes! I can barely stand the grooviness. Braun has a fabulous (and much blogged about) timeline of their 50 years of designing very hip and functional items. The fact that the entire interface is Flash-based earns it a big black mark from yours truly, for reasons well documented in previous posts, but… sigh! The red Aromaster coffee maker from 1972? Divine. The Atelier 1 HiFi system? Austin Powers central! Their 1986 TV set looks like inspiration for the iPod.

If I could, dear readers, I would link you directly to these objects of my design affection, but I can only offer you a link to their Flash timeline: Design Innovation 50. Flash aside, it’s groovy baby.
