      I came across the work of Dieter Rams, by accident, I liked the old style braun alarm clocks.

      I have always liked the look of lectron system, looks so professional, and then when you here it is the work of Dieter Rams, it all becomes obvious.

      I would like to see more of his work, if there are any exhibitions in UK

  • Braun design manual?

    Posted by Manfred November 18 2012 624hrs

    Does anyone know where I could get this Braun manual:

    I believe it was meant to show employees the difference between good and bad advertising/design techniques.

    Also, I've been trying to understand why, or how, Braun's functionalist aesthetic withered. Did it become unpopular? If so, was it because people got bored of the minimalist style? It seems strange that so many enjoy their older products even if they've been discontinued for years; and yet today they seem no different than any other large electronics company. They seem to have lost what made them special; did it leave along with Dieter in 95'? What happened? Reply to this post

    • Posted by Alex Maclean August 22 2013 2112hrs

      Sorry for the late reply - not sure if you'll get this.
      I asked Dieter Rams this very question when I had the chance for a private chat - It seems that the sale to Gillette was the problem - the American approach to product design is marketing led. The marketeers defined the brief for new products by emphasising consumer research, trend research and style forecasts. Then the designers and engineers would be asked to create products in response - therefore the emphasis became stylistic and short term.

      Contrastingly he said the approach at Braun had been very collaborative, bringing marketeers, finance, design and engineers all round one table. This has been likened to the Apple design process, and he remarked that it should be no surprise that you would therefore find such similarities in appearance between Rams' Braun products and those from Apple. He said that there was no plagiarism involved and he felt complimented by it. Reply to this post

        Thank you so much for the informative reply Alex. I thought I'd never get an answer! What you said makes perfect sense, and I can only wish that in the future we'll see a renewed interest in rational design. Reply to this post

  • Ignoramus has Braun Atelier 3 stereo audio to dispose of.

    Posted by Sue Xman June 15 2013 1333hrs

    Hi there,
    I am clearing my father's house, and am wondering what to do with his much loved Braun. It has been regularly used, and is not therefore in mint condition, but is fully functional with the 2 original speakers.
    The item is in south west London.
    Ebay beckons, but are there any alternatives?
    Many thanks for any suggestions,

    Can anyone sell or lead me to 2 replacement hinges for the Vitsoe 571 wardrobe? Or, does anyone know the name of the company that produced the hinges for this system (I have been told that it went out of business decades ago after the owner passed away without any family to take over). Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

    Posted by Dominique Singer October 14 2014 2248hrs

    I have owned the receiver, turntable and speakers since 1975.

    Their condition is very good though it has been about 5 years since I have set up the system. I have had to replace a rubber "mini fan belt" in the turntable several times over the years. These units were originally for the European market but they were adapted for U.S. voltage.

  • shipping a Braun SK6

    Posted by Martha January 11 2015 1430hrs

    I'm hoping that someone can help me to properly secure one of these models for shipping. I found the clip to secure the tonearm, and I removed the platter and packed it separately. I think I need to secure the "tray" part that holds the platter to keep it from bouncing around in transit, but I'm not sure how to do it. Can anyone help me to do this correctly so that the piece is not damaged during shipping?
    Thanks in advance for any advise,

      dear martha look for the screws on the face plate. relocate and screw this into the blanks you see on the faceplate. also for the arms they are ok to lock using wires. also re,ove any haube or abdeckhaube as these break easily and should be packed away from the unit. Reply to this post

  • Braun Lighters

    Posted by Patrick MONTANIER April 27 2017 1209hrs

    I have a large collection of Braun lighters (among other Braun stuff) I got thru my parents who worked for the Gillette Company.
    They are all new and most of them in their original packaging.

    Some of them still work 30 years later, some don't. I am trying very hard to refill them to see if there is any link issue but don't manage to
    complete the task.

    Any tip about the refilling (Mach2, Cylinder...)?
