RAMS | November 13, 2019 Directed by Gary Hustwit 2018, USA, 74 Minutes PREVIEW
Rams is a portrait of Dieter Rams, one of the most influential designers alive, and a rumination on consumerism, materialism, sustainability, and the future of design. For over fifty years, Dieter has left an indelible mark on the world through his iconic work at Braun and Vitsoe. This film dives deep into his philosophy, his process, his inspirations and some of his regrets. His design principles champion simplicity, honesty, and restraint, and still apply to design theory and practice today. Dieter’s philosophy is about more than just design, it’s about a way to live. It’s about getting rid of distractions and visual clutter, and just living with what you need.
This film will screen in both Burlington, VT at Contois Auditorium, and Brattleboro, VT at 118 Elliot at 6pm.
