As Little Design as Possible

Since I heard about this retrospective of Dieter Rams’ work, I’ve been itching to get my hands on a copy. Not only is he – along with Charles and Ray Eames – one of my favourite designers but many of his products have been the inspiration for so much of current design. His classic and timeless design is always a pleasure to look at and remains inspiring decades after its initial release. Containing photographs and sketches of his completed works, as well as marketing plans and some of his prototypes, this seems the dream book for any fan of Rams’ work. Plus, the foreword is written by Jonathan Ive, head of design at Apple, and I’d be very interested in what he has to say about the influence Rams has had on his body of work.
