Less and More – The Design Ethos by Dieter Rams

by Waikit Chung on December 12, 2009

In over 40 years at Braun, Dieter Rams established himself as one of the most influential designers of the 20th century. His elegantly clear visual language not only defined product design for decades, but also our fundamental understanding of what design is and what it can and should do. Elucidating the design philosophy of Dieter Rams, Less and More is the ultimate collection of images of all of Rams’s products as well as selected sketches and models. In addition to the complete visual presentation of his designs, new texts by international experts reevaluate his work in a contemporary context.
