Metrobranding – a Love Story between Men and Objects

Metrobranding – O poveste de dragoste între oameni şi obiecte
Ana Vlad, Adi Voicu

While people in Western Europe were used to choose between hundreds of brands, the communist Romania used to have a different experience: one brand for each basic product. Imagine the importance these "monobrands" acquired in the lives of those who made them and in the lives of those who used them. Relaxa the mattress, the Drăgăşani sneakers, Pegas the bicycle, Mobra the motorcycle, the Fieni light bulb and Ileana the sewing machine, which were once the stars of the Romanian golden era, are now the characters in Metrobranding.
