Dieter Rams -> Cold War Modern Interview

This is a great interview with world renown German industrial designer Dieter Rams. Rams studied architecture at the Werkkunstschule Wiesbaden as well as learning carpentry from 1943 to 1957. After working for the architect Otto Apel between 1953 and 1955 he joined the electronic devices manufacturer Braun where he became chief of design in 1961, a position he kept until 1995. If you work in the design industry you should take the time to watch this interview.
