130 YEARS OF INNOVATION

AEG is relentless in its pursuit of always being an idea ahead. In 2017 we are celebrating 130 years of bringing innovation. Merging intelligent technology with responsive design by following the vision and design philosophy of AEG’s Peter Behrens – perfection in form and function. We will continue innovating and are committed to carrying our legacy into the future.

LOOKING BACK

AEG was founded as the Deutsche Edison-Gesellschaft für angewandte Elektricität in 1883 by Emil Rathenau. A merger with subsidiary Telefunken AG and subsequent acquisitions by Daimler AG and finally Electrolux shaped AEG into the forward-thinking company it is now. Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at AEG. It is the driving force behind our best-known inventions. It is the inspiration behind our sustainable materials. It’s our history and our future.

LOOKING FORWARD

Tomorrow begins today. The way we eat will change. The
 way we dress will change. The way we live will change. We know how technology can enhance the world around us. That’s why we make sure our appliances not only exceed your needs today, but also embrace tomorrow’s technology to fit your future requirements.

FORM AND FUNCTION COMBINE

In 1907, the visionary architect Peter Behrens was appointed Artistic Consultant at AEG. For his work with AEG, Behrens is considered the founder of modern industrial design. Professor Behrens had a simple but powerful design philosophy: ‘Perfekt in Form und Funktion’. He worked tirelessly to create not only the most functional AEG products, but also the most aesthetically appealing.
