“Less and More – the Design Ethos of Dieter Rams” – a photoreportage from the London Design Museum

Dieter Rams’ name is, of course synonymous with design at Braun and of modernist design that survives, thrives – and sells! – through to the present day.

The London Design Museum held a retrospective of Rams’ work, “Less and More – the Design Ethos of Dieter Rams” at the end of 2009 into the first half of this year. Here is a small photoreportage from the exhibition.
