Bibliotheque designed this beautiful retrospective exhibition dedicated to Dieter Rams, one of the 20th centuryâ€™s most influential industrial designers. At the head of design at Braun, he defined an elegant and consistently designed products that we’ve come to know and love. Dieter Rams’ work continually blows me away; his seemingly geometric designs are ever so simple, yet so great.
The exhibition featured 244 objects, spanning six decades of his life and work. Planned across five sections (Dieter Rams solo projects, Braun team projects under Dieterâ€™s leadership, VitsĹ“ and Typology and Legacy), the design of the exhibition utilized an array of graphic expressionsâ€”each appropriate to specific areas of content. The entrance featured an internal facade with Ramsâ€™ Vitsoe 606 compression system spanning the width of the upper gallery. In the middle of the exhibit they recreated part of Ramâ€™s house using the same tiled grid he had in his living room. The back wall of the exhibit featured a seven meter wide mural of the Audio 300 stereo with a superimposed grid demonstrating Braunâ€™s rational approach to product layout.
