Less and More: The Design Ethos of Dieter Rams delves into the works and design philosophy of German designer Dieter Rams. Rams, who worked for over 40 years as head designer for customer product manufacturer Braun, is known as one of the pioneers of minimalism and functionalism, and his influence is still evident in today’s design. The bilingual book offers a multifaceted view on Rams' legacy by presenting hundreds of his products through photographs, sketches and models.
In his more than 40 years at Braun, Rams established himself as one of the most influential designers of the twentieth century. True to the principle of “less but better” his elegantly clear visual language not only defined product design for generations, but also our fundamental understanding of what design is and what it can and should do. Less and More offers boundless inspiration for anyone interested in the aesthetic and functional aspects of applied design.
