Opening its doors on the 18th of November at London’s Design Museum, is the first UK retrospective of the iconic designers work. A career that has spanned over 40 years and has impacted upon modern design like no other.
“As head of design at Braun, the German consumer electronics manufacturer, Dieter Rams emerged as one of the most influential industrial designers of the late 20th century by defining an elegant, legible, yet rigorous visual language for its products. The exhibition will showcase Rams’ landmark designs for Braun and furniture manufacturer Vitsœ, examine how Rams’ design ethos inspired Braun’s entire product range for over 40 years, and assess his lasting influence on today’s design landscape.”
The exhibition showcases landmark designs for both Braun and Vitsoe from the 1950s onward alongside archive film footage, models, sketches and prototypes.
