Before apps, text messages, and cameras, there was a phone that changed the way we conversed over telecommunications. Designed by Henry Dreyfuss Associates, the Trimline telephone for Western Electric (which supplied AT&T) was produced from 1965 until the late 90’s. This phone was a benchmark in the development of modern telephone design and production.

German industrial designer, Dieter Rams, has an extensive career of making product designs for Braun. Das Programm, the store and archive of Dieter Rams‘ work for Braun, curated an exhibition entitled "Systems," where they asked 34 graphic designers to respond to “systematicity of Braun Design," in the vein of Rams' classic work for the company. The resulting poster art designs, ranging from classic Braun designs to products that never saw production, are up in the Walter Knoll showroom in Clerkenwell, London, through December 31, 2013.
