  1. REINHOLD WEISS was the first one of altogether only two graduates (later also Richard Fischer) from the graduate school of design, the Hochschule fuer Gestaltung at Ulm / Germany (often referred to as the “Second Bauhaus”) who worked inhouse at the Braun Company during the pioneering years of the new design era at Braun in the late 50’s/ early 60’s. Reinhold Weiss is living in Chicago for more than 40 years now. A lot of his national + international well known design products (e. g. BRAUN, PROTON, NAD) are to be seen in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

    …it is a hairdryer.
