RAMS is a documentary portrait of Dieter Rams, one of the most influential designers alive, and a rumination on consumerism, sustainability, and the future of design.

 

For over fifty years, Dieter Rams has left an indelible mark on the field of product design and the world at large with his iconic work at Braun and Vitsoe. The objects he has designed have touched the lives of millions of people – so many of us have had a Braun coffeemaker, shaver, stereo, calculator, speakers, or alarm clock. Or an Oral-B toothbrush. Or a Vitsoe 606 shelving system. Or any of the hundreds of other products. Dieter Rams has designed or overseen the design of.

 

“The man who all but invented consumer product design as we know it today.” – The Guardian

 

“Indifference towards people and the reality in which they live is actually the one and only cardinal sin in design.” – Dieter Rams
