    What a great article, and you can clearly see how influenced Ive is by Rams' ideas. I love the comparison of the G5/Mac Pro with Ram's 60s radio :)

    It really does bring home just how much late 50s and 60s style has returned to fashion. Watch old episodes of UFO and the sets look exactly like the rooms in the BO Concept catalogue. Love it.

    Very cool! Yeah, it's interesting to see old things, esp. appliances and furniture and see how their designs have evolved (or been borrowed). Was at Pinakothek der Moderne the other day and there's lots of 60s furniture, which looks essentially like much of the stuff you find at IKEA today.

    Sadly, that was the original old Braun of yore.
    These days, very little of that design integrity is left in their products.
    Glad to see how the quality has been passed on.

    Haha, yeah, passed on to a different brand.

    I didn't know Braun made things other than electric razors and toothbrushes.

    Very cool! Thanks for sharing. I thought it was going to be a joke, but this is the real deal. Fascinating.
