This Mobile Evolution print by Kyle Bean is a simple but effective way to show how technology has changed over a relatively short period.

We shouldn't need to explain to you how important Dieter Rams is to consumer industrial design but here's a brief overview for the uninitiated. From the humble beginnings of his career at Braun AG in 1955, he lead the way in championing minimalism & innovation in consumer products. Original Rams' pieces are highly sought after by electronics geeks the world over and his 10 Principles of Good Design have influenced such luminaries as Jonathan Ive, designer of the iPod & iMac amongst other things.
This Dieter Rams print from Blue Ant Studio is a celebration of the undisputed master of consumer electronics design. The print features key, typically minimalist pieces designed by Rams during his illustrious 40 year career at Braun, including the famous SK-4 radio & record player.
The Dieter Rams print is $55 (including international shipping) from Blue Ant Studio. See the website for more details.
