Braun’s 90th

January 31, 2011 § 3 Comments

I never understood why people made such a big deal about anniversaries of things using only round numbers. Why isn’t the 91st anniversary as important as the 90th?

In any event, it seems Braun agrees. Tomorrow is the 90th anniversary and being typically German they’re doing roughly nothing to advertise it. They put together a rather neat slideshow, though, over at the website.

It’s crazy to think that all of this has happened in such a short period of time. I would argue that industrial design as we know it is entirely defined by this short era, these handfuls of men. And, as I tend to rant, it’s already in something of a decline. Ah well, we just have to take over and make it better. I always did like a challenge…

Happy Braunday, everyone.
