Das Programm has two departments – Shop and Seminars. The first was established to make fully serviced, museum condition Braun Design available without e-auction frustration. We supply and advise world-class institutions, including the Vitra Museum, the London Design Museum, the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum and the HfG Ulm Archive. And we’re pleased to offer the same service to individuals, whether they're serious Braun collectors or design enthusiasts with a regard for vinyl. Viewing and listening at our Wilton Way showroom, London E8, is by appointment only.
Our seminar programme makes use of Das Programm’s core collection of Braun Design and the expertise of its Director, Dr Peter Kapos. The objects around which seminars are constructed exist together in only a handful of places across the world. Using these landmark designs as physical reference points, visitors are led through a history of Braun Design. The experience is intimate and discursive; handling is encouraged. Two seminars are currently offered – Braun Audio, and the Braun Programme (extending to household, photography and printed materials).
Das Programm Director, Dr Peter Kapos, is a leading authority on the history of Braun Design. He has been involved with a number of exhibition and writing projects connected to the subject, amongst them the curation of The Ulm Model, a major exhibition of archive materials related to the HfG Ulm presented at Raven Row Gallery in 2016, the curation and supply of Braun printed materials to the London Design Museum, an introductory essay for the English translation of the seminal 1997 Braun+Design Collection and an introduction to a monograph on the work of design studio Industrial Facility, forthcoming from Phaidon. Dr Kapos is a founding partner of London graphic design studio Systems, who provided the design for this website.
