“Rams” is the new documentary film from Gary Hustwit (Helvetica) about legendary designer Dieter Rams. For over fifty years, 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 86 years old, why does he now regret being a designer? RAMS is a design documentary, but it’s also a rumination on consumerism, sustainability, and technology is changing human behavior. Dieter’s philosophy is about more than just design, it’s about a way to live. The film also features an original score by pioneering musician Brian Eno.
“Rams” is screening now at special events worldwide, and will be released digitally in December 2018. More info and teasers from the film at hustwit.com/rams
