Design by Reinhold Weiss
Reinhold Weiss is an industrial designer born in Germany in 1934, currently living in Tucson, Arizona. His products are now considered to be the symbol of the functionalist school of industrial design and contributed to the success of BRAUN. Reinhold Weiss studied from 1955 to 1959 at the Hochschule für Gestaltung Ulm, which is considered the most important international design school after the Bauhaus, and graduated with a diploma. From 1959 to 1967, he was the first of only two Ulm graduates to work as a product designer for the electrical appliance manufacturer Braun. From 1962, he was deputy head of the design department at Braun and independently responsible for the household sector. In 1967 he moved to Chicago, where he worked for hi-fi equipment manufacturers NAD (New Acoustic Dimension) and Proton, among others.
