A Style Room to Celebrate the 85th Birthday of Dieter Rams
Museum Angewandte Kunst, Frankfurt/Main
21 May – 15 October 2017
Today, on 20 May 2017 at 5 p.m. the Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt/Main is opening a style room on the occasion of Dieter Rams’ 85th birthday. The industrial designer will personally attend the opening. Dieter Rams is a proponent of sustainable design and one of the most influential industrial designers of the 20th century. His assertions such as “Design is Thinking” or “Less is More” reflect his position in the world of design and his sense of responsibility to the product world. The Museum Angewandte Kunst, Frankfurt, has designed a space with changing exhibits that illustrate the content and biographical context of Rams’ designs. Timeless furniture can be found alongside his famous designs for Braun, the designs have been given to the museum on permanent loan by the company. In collaboration with the Dieter und Ingeborg Rams foundation, the museum is also setting up an archive of Rams’ personal files and photographic legacy.
