“The awarding ceremony was a two-day long program that started on September 30 in the “Crystal Palace” of Braun HQ in Kronberg. One of the most exciting part of the program was when we had a guided tour in the Braun Design Department and they showed us the process of how they work and the main philosophy the department is built on. I can tell, it was an extraordinary experience!” – said Alberto.
