40 years later – westalgia

September 7th, 2010 by bernd

Vorwerk is an international diversified corporate group with annual revenues of more than 2 billion Euros…

I was about 7 years old when a Vorwerk sales person came to our dwelling (in fact we lived in a newly built garage while my father continued constructing the house) and demonstrated the merits of modern technology. Instead of a vacuum cleaner bag he (or was it a she?) used a spotless white cloth – with appalling effect. Few days later we had one of those green and ugly Vorwerks in the garage.

Today, the vacuum cleaners still exist and are still ugly.
