“RAMS" is the new documentary from Gary Hustwit (Helvetica, Objectified, Urbanized) about legendary German designer Dieter Rams. For more than 50 years, Rams has left an indelible mark on the field of product design, with his iconic work at Braun and Vitsoe, and his influence on Apple. So at 87 years old, why does he now regret being a designer? "Rams" is a design documentary, but it’s also a rumination on consumerism, sustainability, and the future of design. Dieter's philosophy is about more than just design, it’s about a way to live. The film also features an original score by pioneering musician Brian Eno.
