Less and More – The Design Ethos of Dieter Rams

Dieter

We're big fans of the work of Dieter Rams here, most of which is extensively catalogued in Less and More – The Design Ethos of Dieter Rams.

This is the book of an exhibition, held at Suntory Museum in Osaka, Japan, featuring images of over 500 consumer products designed by Rams from the 1950s through to the 1990s, primarily for Braun. It's packed full of colour images and sketches, along with both English and Japanese text and seriously cool packaging – a white plastic cover protected by a grey cardboard sleeve and different paper types used throughout.

If you want to know why Dieter Rams is the most influential product designer of the modern era, you need this. A limited edition, it sells for £75.
