The Tribute Collection reissues BRAUN's most popular and proved kitchen appliances. The collection is characterized by a fine selection of simple and purposeful products that were designed for specific tasks in the kitchen. The new product line pays tribute to its predecessor by taking the original design approach and embedding it within a modern context. The new collection features distinct shapes, subtle green accents combined with glossy white main elements and an improved performance. The Tribute Collection represents functionality, quality and timeless elegance that integrates seamlessly into every kitchen.
The Tribute Collection's jug blender JB 3060 WHS is one of the products that we were involved in to a great extent. The glass jug with its unique triangular shape, which is able to generate a more efficient blending circulation due to its horizontal and vertical streams, was to be left unchanged. Instead the jug should take center stage for the Tribute Collection. Similar to the design approach of the entire Tribute Collection the base of the jug blender containing the motor unit is characterized by distinct and unobtrusive lines. It is comprised of a truncated cone which mirrors the conical shape of the jug. Consequently an hour glass shape came into being, clearly separating the base from the jug. The base is designed in a glossy white color with a characteristically high collar that serves as the socket for the jug while subtly hiding the docking site.
The jug itself was improved by reworking the handle as well as the lid with regard to their ergonomic characteristics. The blade unit can be removed in order to make the cleaning procedure significantly more comfortable and efficient. Keeping user friendliness in mind the interface was designed to look as simple and neat as possible. It consists of only one circular push-button to activate the turbo mode and an additional rotary knob which is used to select one of the five speed levels or the pulse-function of the blender. Only the green rotary knob accentuates the new jug blender and emphasizes its affiliation to the Tribute Collection.
