Design grandmaster Dieter Rams is honoured with a documentary
With his iconic designs for Braun and Vitsoe, Dieter Rams has been written into the annals of design history, significantly influencing countless modern designers — including Apple Design Chief Jonathan Ive. New York filmmaker Gary Hustwit, who caused a sensation in 2007 with his cinematic homage to the font Helvetica and has since made such documentary films as Objectified and Urbanized, now pays tribute to Dieter Rams with his own film. The production was made possible by more than 5,000 supporters, who donated about a quarter of a million dollars through a Kickstarter campaign. And the first trailers for the movie Rams can be seen below, with the official release date set for 2018.
