designer's rationale:

Apparently simple, Braun products are beautifully complex at heart. Using an ordered system as the base for a collage method, this poster is a play on the notion of simple complexity - an image of a Braun T 3 table lighter where simple geometry eats simple geometry. 

about the systems14 print collection:

Twenty-four Asia based designers and studios were invited to produce A0 poster designs on the theme of Braun Design.

Apart from format and the requirement to communicate the exhibition date and location, the brief was left as open as possible. The idea was to gather an informal survey of Eastern views on mid 20th century European modernism. Designs were submitted from places as far apart and culturally distinct as South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Thailand and Malaysia. The extraordinary array of responses suggests renewed lines of approach to a tradition that, in the West at least, remains as attractive as it does problematic.

systems is a project jointly curated by das programm and systems, produced in association with Braun.
