Documentarian Gary Hustwit (Helvetica, Objectified) returns with an insightful film about sustainability, and the future of design. With his iconic work at Braun and Vitsoe, Dieter Rams has left an indelible mark on the field of product design, influencing the way most of today’s consumer products look and function. Equally, his “Ten Principles of Good Design,” that champion simplicity, honesty, and restraint, still apply to design theory and practice today. Featuring original music by pioneering musician and producer Brian Eno, Rams is an engaging and thought provoking study of modern design and how we consume it.
This film screens on 14 March for Melbourne Design Week before a theatrical season at ACMI from 28 March.
