Dieter Rams in Frankfurt
Posted by Alex
I am very jealous of any of our readers that are able to make it to this event. Starting May 22, the Less is More exhibit will be at the Museum für Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt, Germany. The exhibit surveys Dieter Rams entire body of work and is also accompanied by a lecture series. I’m hoping this Vitsoe sponsored roving exhibit will eventually make its way to California. Though the last time I wanted to visit a design museum, I had to all the way to Milan.
If you can’t make it to the event, do remember the 800 page catalog I posted on not long ago. This book is terrific. If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, they are available from Vitsoe and Amazon.

I wish it would come to California too. Less is more is the LA city motto after all.

Thanks for posting this Alex.
Obviously at Vitsœ we’re really excited that this exhibition has made it from Japan, to the UK and now to Germany. Fingers crossed for a US tour…
We’ve opened in NYC last year, so if you make it over there drop by and say hi to them.
Thanks for the catalogue plug, too.

I went to the exhibition in Tokyo — it was fantastic. Dieter was there as well, which of course made it that much better.. I bought every exhibition poster they had on sale. :-)
The catalogue is a very in-depth resource, and a perfect addition to my 606 shelving!
(hey Daniel, how are you?)

I will be there on July the 17. or the 24. In the meantime, Flickr will be full of Photos, I guess. I hope I there will be some of the posters left…
