The wondrous Gestalten has a terrific selection of videos up on their site Gestalten tv. Anyone familiar with their publications knows that Gestalten is synonymous with extremely high quality production. I wasn’t familiar with many of the subjects listed, but found each one engaging and very well done. The one on Postlerferguson above was especially entertaining. Definitely going to order a paper MP5.
Of course I had to include the recent video on Dieter Rams above. I find interviews with him to be mesmerizing and am nowhere close to tired of seeing new ones pop up (as his exhibition makes waves in London). The book Less and More is available for purchase from Gestalten (in Europe), Vitsoe, and Amazon (though looks like not until January).
Gestalten.tv creates a broad range of documentaries, interviews and features that introduce Gestalten related subjects alongside individuals, projects and companies that are vanguards of visual culture.

“The unspectacular things are the important things.” Wow that says it all! Dieter Rams is a genius. I love listening to him as well…almost every time I have listened to him I had to listen again to absorb the information because the first time was just unbelievable.

Nice to hear some big theory about the future at the end of Dieter Rams’s interview.

@samuel – Agreed, yeah that song is totally wrong for vid #2! Ugh.
Love the white guns though. I ordered one, so we’ll see how easy it is to build…
