Reinhold Weiss, Jürgen Greubel: Braun HL 70
Reinhold Weiss, Jürgen Greubel: Braun HL 70
A revision of Weiss' iconic HL 1 Multiwind desk fan issued a decade earlier, registering Braun's shift of the late '60s from functionalism towards a more affirmative mode technological expressivism. Bright synthetic colour replaces the austere palate of greys; form is reduced a cylinder; controls are simplifed ; a transparent cradle, giving a gravity defying appearance, replaces the fixed stem and base arrangement of the earlier design.

An example is held in the MoMA permanent collection.

Year: 1971
