< Rams is a documentary portrait of Dieter Rams, one of the most influential designers alive, and a rumination on consumerism, sustainability, and the future of design.
“The man who all but invented consumer product design as we know it today.” – The Guardian

“To quantify his impact, you need only look at the millions of Apple products in our pockets.” 
—Fast Company

“Dieter Rams’ design ethos has shaped the way entire generations think about making and consuming.” —Wired

“Indifference towards people and the reality in which they live is actually the one and only cardinal sin in design.” – Dieter Rams >

< For over fifty years, Dieter Rams has left an indelible mark on the field of product design and the world at large with his iconic work at Braun and Vitsoe. The objects Dieter has designed have touched the lives of millions of people––so many of us have had a Braun coffeemaker, shaver, stereo, calculator, speakers, or alarm clock. Or an Oral-B toothbrush. Or a Vitsoe 606 shelving system. Or any of the hundreds of other products Dieter has designed or overseen the design of.
His work has influenced the way most of today's consumer products look and function. The computer or phone you're reading this on looks the way it does because of Dieter Rams. Dieter's influence also extends to his "Ten Principles of Good Design," <https://www.vitsoe.com/us/about/good-design> a list of edicts that champions simplicity, honesty, and restraint, and still applies to design theory and practice today. >
