I just finished reading the monograph Dieter Rams: As Little Design as Possible. The book covers the life and work of the influential German industrial designer whose hundreds of products are still manufactured and whose principles are still practiced.
This was my first introduction to Rams, but I recognized his work in the 606 Universal Shelving System, Braun shavers, and the SK4 record player. These products were so successful they set the standard design for whole classes of products to follow. For example, I’ve never seen a record player without a clear case.
