At $440 it's not the cheapest or most functional timekeeper you can strap to your wrist, but if aesthetics are your priority when buying a watch, you're not going to find anything simpler or cleaner than one created using Dieter Rams' design philosophy.
Dieter Rams left a lasting legacy at Braun that still influences the products the company creates today. Just take a look at this simple analog alarm clock, that's found a clever way to compete with all the other monstrous smartphone docks vying for space on your bedside table.
Dieter Rams is the undisputed granddaddy of modern industrial design. The German legend's ten commandments for good design are considered gospel in the field, and his impeccable collections for Braun elevated home appliances to mass-produced art.
Shaving with an electric razor saves you the hassle of dealing with messy shaving cream and dull blades that can leave your face all cut up. But the friction generated by an electric razor's moving blades usually causes the head to heat up, which can in turn irritate a dry face. The only alternative left is to let…
If Braun's ET66 calculator looks oddly familiar, like you've used it before, you probably have. Originally released in 1987, the ET66 shed the sliding switches of its predecessors, the ET22 released in 1976 and the ET44 released in 1978, and became an icon of product design. So much so that the iPhone's original…
Although the deals universe is waking up from its pre-Christmas torpor and shifting into a Boxing-week frenzy, it's a different kind of sale we're seeing. Instead of promo codes that take a percentage off everything in the store, we're seeing sale sections balloon. That means instead of deals on stuff you actually…
In 1978, Dieter Rams designed a watch for Braun that saw a limited, 3,000 unit production run. The stainless-steel DW30 featured a digital face and only two buttons, with a thick, leather band holding the timekeeper in place. Out of production since 1982, Braun has resurrected the spirit of the DW30 with the BN0076—a…
Alarm clocks—or alarm phones, if you wish—are a necessity, but that doesn't make me hate them less. During the week, I live and die by a buzzer, but on the weekend, I don't have to listen to no clock.
For as revolutionary a style Steve Jobs created, it wasn't derived from thin air. One of his biggest and most direct influences was Dieter Rams, a 40-year veteran designer with the Braun Company. Here are 15 of Rams' best products from our friends at Oobject.
Even if it brewed the worst cup of coffee known to man, I would still drink whatever the Braun Aromaster KF 20 dripped into my cup because I'd be so hypnotized by its beauty.
Relaunching the watches line they created with Dieter Rams back in the '70s is possibly one of the greatest ideas Braun will ever have. Designed by Zeon, they're actually very Apple; almost like tiny iMacs strapped to your wrist.
Industrial design student Richard Wilson of the University of Leeds has transformed the ubiquitous Braun Aromaster KF20 with a captivating sci-fi style. No longer a coffee pot so unobtrusively formed that it stands to be ignored, Wilson's robo version pops. [Appliancist]
Maybe some tools aren't old-fashioned. Maybe they're just perfect. The inevitable tapering toward only the necessary, the honing away of all distraction. The machine at its most simple. After that, what? Easy: mass production.
The Braun BodyCruzer is a full body groomer, an water-proof electrical trimmer with a Gillette's Fusion razor built-in for all-purpose shaving. I will keep my manly latino chest intact, thank you very much. [Uncrate]
Attention design nerds: prepare to drool. This ReBraun is an MP3 jukebox that's based on the "Audio 1 Kompaktanlage" designed by Dieter Rams in 1962, and it's awesome.
The year 2008 marks the 10th Anniversary of the iMac, the computer that changed everything at Apple, hailing a new design era spearheaded by design genius Jonathan Ive. What most people don't know is that there's another man whose products are at the heart of Ive's design philosophy, an influence that permeates every…
