designers' rationale:

A fictional, Braun-inspired wall clock (loosely based on Dietrich Lubs’ ABW 30), its handless face displaying a decimal dial referring to the Jacobin notion of ‘French Revolutionary Time’ – a heartfelt monument to failed utopias, and a spectral blueprint of a future that never was.

about the systems print collection:

Thirty-four leading graphic designers and studios were invited to produce a poster design on the theme of Braun systems design. From repetition and development to nostalgia and critique, the diversity of response to the systems brief offers a snapshot of the international graphic design scene at a fascinating juncture,  one in which the legacy of modernist graphic design appears with renewed but uncertain relevance. At the same time, systems samples some of the best and most challenging work currently being produced.

The systems collection is curated by das programm and produced in association with Braun.
