It’s not thanks to Apple and their chief designer Jonathan Ive that Dieter Rams is regarded as one of the greatest designers of modern time. The trained architect’s designs for Braun are legendary. Even at home, the living legend seeks after a form that is reduced to its function – every piece of interior in his house is penned by himself. If he were to choose a career again, he wouldn’t become a designer again, though. Nowadays, everything is designed through and through, “it’s a time of deceleration we need”, says Rams.
