Rams for Gillette
Posted by Scott
Faasdant has some nice shots of the [possibly] Dieter Rams designed Gillette (Braun’s parent company) Supermax Pro 1300 hair dryer. Very 80’s, in the best possible way. I remember my mom having a similar model, but cream with black type. Now they all look like a prop from a bad sci-fi movie.

I love when modern industrial products utilize swiss design/grid-based thinking!

the text layout and the use of those thin lines is pretty perfect, would also love it in burgundy/light grey

just came across this post googling around about the Pro Max.. actually I believe it was designed by American designer Morison Cousins. Definitely a Braun/Rams style relative, though.

Indeed Dieter Rams designed it for Braun, as Braun belongs to Gillette Corp., many Braun hair dryers were available in US under that brand.
Take a look on the Braun model here on flickr.
