A quick look at Dieter

Many of you are probably familiar with the phrase “less is more” from a poem by Andrea Sarto and then perhaps immortalized by the great Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. ┬áDieter Rams started his career as an architect like Mies and I feel very much designed by the same philosophy that, less is more.


While young in his career Dieter had some designs (while working for Braun) that revolutionized the design world as a whole, forever leaving his mark. He is still in action and oversees the designs and progress at Vitsoe. The link is from Vitseo’s site that my friend recently sent me refreshing my memory of Dieter and caused me to share this with you. With that brief overview, here is Dieters Ten Commandments for good design, Dieter Rams: ten principles for good design. A little food for thought and don’t forget to stop by the store and get a little Abe. Enjoy!
