systems is an exhibition of commissioned poster designs and ‘60s Braun products.
Recent years have seen a revival of interest in modernist graphic design, but little agreement about what, in practical terms, this might mean or what is ultimately at stake in it. Thirty-four leading graphic designers and studios were invited to produce a poster design on the theme of Braun systems design. From repetition and development to nostalgia and critique, the diversity of response to the systems brief offers a snapshot of the international graphic design scene in this moment of uncertain possibility. At the same time, systems samples some of the best and most challenging work currently being produced.
Presented in a single grid at the Walter Knoll London showroom 25 Nov – 31 Dec 2013, the works are available for purchase as a limited edition of A1 prints, individually or as a cased set.
systems is curated by das programm and produced in association with Braun, exhibition design and graphics undertaken by Giorgio Del Buono and Michal Polak.
