Dieter Rams is in New York to help celebrate 60s 606 is 50, the 50th anniversary exhibition of his 606 shelving system. Rams designed the 606 as a 28-year-old man back in 1960, and the wall-track-based system is still being produced by original manufacturer Vitsoe. In a time when Ikea product lineups cycle out every few years, five decades of continuous production for the 606 seems even more impressive.
The Times caught up with Rams for a quick Q&A, worth a read for some personal tidbits. Check it out here.
