To celebrate 100 years of ‘good design’ in 2021, Braun entered a one-of-a-kind collaboration with Abloh that saw him delve into the Braun archives to update and co-curate the 1965 ‘Wandanlage’ hi fi audio wall unit with Braun’s design team into a “functional art” piece. It is the first time that the public will see the “functional art” during the exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum.

Ben Wilson, Director of Communications at Braun Design, said: “When designing and co-creating the reimagined Wandanlage hi fi audio wall unit with Virgil Abloh, our aim was to bring to life the ethos of ‘good design’ – design that is Simple, Useful and Built to last – to broader audiences beyond purist design lovers. We are delighted to be supporting sponsors of the Brooklyn Museum’s “Figures of Speech” exhibition, and to share the “functional art” piece with all for the first time.”
