Brian Eno To Score Dieter Rams Design Documentary
Rounik Sethi on Thu, March 1st | 0 comments
You might not expect a film about designer Dieter Rams, responsible for hundreds of products we use daily, to focus on sustainability and materialism. It does. It also features the music of Brian Eno.

Do you enjoy words like interaction, usability, design? If so it's likely you have some appreciation of product design. Perhaps you even know about influential designer, Dieter Rams, responsible for many of his iconic Braun designs amongst others. Well, a documentary about him and his work is in the making. Marry that with music by Brian Eno and you've got a very tasty visual and audio combination indeed.

The documenatry film will be released later in 2018.

Here's the official info about the documenatry:

For over fifty years, Dieter Rams has left an indelible mark on the field of product design and the world at large with his iconic work at Braun and Vitsoe. The objects Dieter has designed have touched the lives of millions of people––so many of us have had a Braun coffeemaker, shaver, stereo, calculator, speakers, or alarm clock. Or an Oral-B toothbrush. Or a Vitsoe 606 shelving system. Or any of the hundreds of other products Dieter has designed or overseen the design of. His work has influenced the way most of today's consumer products look and function.

But one of the most interesting parts of Dieter's story is that he now looks back on his career with some regret. "If I had to do it over again, I would not want to be a designer," he has said. "There are too many unnecessary products in this world." He has long been an advocate for the ideas of environmental consciousness and long-lasting products. RAMS is a design documentary, but it’s also a rumination on consumerism, materialism, and sustainability. Dieter's philosophy is about more than just design, it’s a about a way to live. It’s about getting rid of distractions and visual clutter, and just living with what you need.

The film is currently in production as will be released later in 2018.
