Published by Phaidon, Dieter Rams: The Complete Works showcases the work of the world-famous German product designer. The informative texts are complemented by large, stylish photographs. The book has been edited by Klaus Klemp, a professor of design theory and history at the HfG Offenbach, and curator of design at the Museum Angewandte Kunst, Frankfurt.
For more than sixty years Dieter Rams has defined the look, feel, and function of some of the world's best-loved consumer items. Using his 'ten principles for good design' as a philosophy and practice for improving the industry in a more holistic, responsible way, Rams has built a reputation with global resonance. Here, for the first time, is a catalogue raisonné of every product that he has designed in his lifetime — a true celebration of his seminal contribution to the field of industrial and product design.
