The Braun Design Team at work, now as then.

How was design created back then? The design process was different. Designs were only presented with models, sometimes pulled out someone's pocket (big pockets) to put a sudden end to discussions. When designers started to draw on their drawing boards, they were so fast and noisy that it was hard to concentrate. Right next door the model makers worked in white jackets, creating an atmosphere more laboratory than model shop. A clean high precision room. All models were built in-house, sometimes just on the basis of a few words or rough sketches.

The 80s.

In the 80s Braun Design had mythical status and was discussed controversially among students. Those discussions also took place at Braun internally, and we asked ourselves, how could we transform classic Braun Design for the future? Computer aided design opened up a completely new world of possibilities. We experimented with 3D software and different interpretations of Braun design came to life as we searched for the new.


Today we found our way forward, by balancing the past with the new. This comes with a new spirit, new tools and new ways of working across the globe with colleagues in Geneva, Boston or Bejing. And yes, models are still very important - but so are renderings and animations today.
