Rams: Principles of Good Design

Documentary. Dieter Rams has left an indelible mark on the field of product design. Why, at the age of 87, does he now regret ever taking up the profession?

For over fifty years, Dieter Rams has left an indelible mark on the field of product design with his iconic work at Braun and Vitsoe, and his influence on Apple. So, at 87 years old, why does he now regret being a designer?

Rams is a design documentary, but it is also a rumination on consumerism, sustainability and the future of design. Dieter's philosophy is about more than just design. It is about a way to live. The film also features an original score by pioneering musician Brian Eno.
