"Good design should be as little as possible". It's the ethos that Dieter Rams has applied to all his work that resonates as soon as you see it. The extremely successful Rams is responsible for the look of one of the most iconic transistor radios, the T3 for Braun in 1958. Aside from his work with Braun in electrics (incidentally inspring the aesthetic of most of the apple products) he also designed furniture. The 606 Universal Shelving system is now so well known from Vitsoe. It's lifetime guarantee see's it still cropping up in the interior of the grandparents and never looking out of place. The modular kit 620 Chair Programme is a genius system that allows you to create bespoke sofa scenario, turning a chair into a two or three piece sofa. As far as the Dieter Rams products go, they don't come cheap but they do last a lifetime. Hence we never see it crop up on our travels - it's all still in use!
