Dieter Rams. Modular World
Vitra Design Museum
Charles-Eames-Straße 2, 79576 Weil am Rhein, Germany
Dieter Rams's designs for Braun are legendary, while his ideas about design are more topical than ever today. Rams's best-known furniture design is his shelving system 606, but his seating furniture also shows the diversity of his design activity. The Schaudepot exhibition shows Rams's furniture and electrical appliances, supplemented by various documents from the archive and an interview in which Rams explains his designs and his design philosophy. It clearly shows how deeply Rams's designs are rooted in a consistent worldview that looks for simplicity, honesty and reduction. Their timelessness makes them textbook examples of sustainable design, continuing to influence designers even today.
