Fifteen Dieter Rams classic designsOct 17 2011

Oobject has a collection of Dieter Rams' distinctive work for Braun.

Dieter Rams' 40 year stint at Braun until 1995 redefined the world of product design, taking pure modernism to the world of gadgets. He is the direct inspiration for much of Apple's product design after Steve Jobs returned and in many aspects his work is more rigorous and more coherent than Apple's.

I hadn't seen this massive speaker before:

And hey, I didn't know that a book had been published on Rams' work. I bet Jony Ive has at least three copies. (via monoscope)
