Could Dieter Rams be largely responsible for the successful designs of the iPod and other Apple products?

You Decide.

For more information about Dieter Rams’ work, check out OCAC’s copy of Sophie Lovell’s book: As little design as possible : the work of Dieter Rams. London : Phaidon, 2011.

Dieter Rams also has an interesting essay published in  Design and Art  (a title from MIT Press’s Documents of Contemporary Art Series) called “ Home is where the art is.”

Also check out the blog, MEERSCHWEINCHENREPORT ,  for other great pieces on designers and artists as well as a wide variety of other sometimes provocative but always captivating posts. MEERSCHWEINGHENREPORT is where I first came across the Dieter Rams video. Visit it!
