When thinking about Dieter Rams and his approach to design, his aesthetic, good design commandments and the absolute precision of his products and furniture, it's hard not to be in awe. A while ago, we were experimenting with posting product design images on the duel of doves Instagram feed, trawling through this incredible recourse called, Das Programm. These guys research Braun Design from 1955 to 1995, which they refer to as the period of Dieter Rams' directorship. Their activities span writing projects, exhibition curation and the supply of objects to museums. Within this resource, they have the best collection or archive of Dieter Rams Braun products that we have ever seen—photographed brilliantly.
Dieter Rams is a German industrial designer, born in 1932. He is best know for his work with the products company Braun, the furniture company Vitsœ and the Functionalist School of Industrial Design. His humble approach to design, believing in "less, but better" added a timeless quality to his work, which he sums up well in his commandments for good design.
Dieter Rams, good design:
In recent times, we stumbled across this collection of free Dieter Rams phone wallpapers. The website has been designed and built by Arun Venkatesan, with photos supplied by the JF Chen Collection Auction. These wallpapers are a fantastic source of inspiration that you can take with you on your daily travels and access on your phone.
