    One thought on “Dieter Rams: As Little Design as Possible

    1. Alexey on said:

      A very well written book that explores the logic and ethos behind close-to-perfect Braun products.

    2. Pieter Aart on said:

      Amazing look into Rams industrial design development and the history of Braun from the lead up by Bauhaus to his final work.

    3. Nathan on said:

      As a person who paid little attention to Dieter Rams before, this was an eye opening and informative book. It incorporates a brief background on Dieter Rams, the formation of Braun, and details on a number of the products Dieter was a part of.The sections that talk about the products can feel a bit dry at times. All are worth reading for the stories behind the creation of the products. Some more rich and interesting than others. They are accompanied by marvelous photos. The pictures of Dieter's [...]

      First impressions: One of the worst dust covers I've see. Malodourous plastic which, nicely detailed & printed, is entirely unsuitable for a dustcover, because apart from smelling like a cheap action figure left in the sun it immortalises every little dent along its edges, fits too loosely to offer any convincing degree of protection.I was very unimpressed with the thin grey card sleeve on Kemp's "Less and More", but this is worse.

    6. Panagiotis Spiliotis on said:

      Most of the information in this book can be easily found elsewhere online in greater detail and depth. The most valuable parts of the book are those that give a historical and cultural context of the principles that shaped Dieter Rams's' thinking and work.

    7. Gavin on said:

      Excellent book on Dieter Rams' products and philosophy. It is an inspiration to both read and to experience the beautiful photography.

    8. Dave Paola on said:

      It was a lot more about Dieter Rams than design in general. Still a worthwhile read, but not what I expected.

    9. Aman Parnami on said:

      I read parts of it while researching Dieter Rams for a blog. Loved the presentation, writing and inspiring work compiled into this book.
