Dieter Rams is one of the most influential product designers of the twentieth century, who for more than sixty years has been defining 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. Including 300 color illustrations, the book is organized chronologically, each product is accompanied by a detailed description and specification breakdown, making this the ultimate reference guide for Rams fans.
