Hardly any company embodies the aesthetic language of the German post-war period more distinctly than Braun. Whether razors, hi-fi systems, watches or kitchen appliances, Braun devices are all linked together by a formal language which, combined with their ease of use, sets a precedent for functionalist design to this day. A number of significant designers such as Wilhelm Wagenfeld, Hans Gugelot and Dieter Rams worked for Braun. 100 years after the company´s foundation, the exhibition at the Bröhan Museum shows the finest examples of Braun design. The development of functionalist device design – which also made a lasting effect on other companies such as Bang and Olufsen and Apple – will be a thematic focus of the exhibition, just as the intertwining of design, art and politics in the company´s 100-year-long history.

In a new series titled “Braun Icons” we present Braun´s most iconic designs in short video clips in German and English. The clips are published every Thursday on our social media channels (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube).

In co-operation with the Braun-Sammlung Ettel.
